Cimetières de France, The national cemeteries inventory >> About the project

About the project

Welcome on this new website dedicated to the French cemeteries, its graves and its deceased people.

This public space has been created for everyone, private people, professionals from the funeral sector, cities, towns, villages in charge of cemetery management, in order to become an informative place on this particular and sensible subject.

Our knowledge is often very limited in terms of graveyards:

Thanks to our daily experience in the cemeteries of France and the help of our specialists and lawyers, we are going step by step to build the information elements useful to everyone on this multimedia tool.

Inventorying, referencing, informing, explaining, orienting, sharing, putting in relation, respecting … These words designate the fundamental principles of this space that, as every single graveyard in France, will be full of life and wealth.
