|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Cimetier de Vence sits just a short distance from the walled city section of the downtown area of Vence, France. Vence is located a short distance from the coastal cities of Nice and Cannes.
It is a beautiful old cemetery with many ornate stones, some readable, some not. The cemetery sits on the side of a hill with many landscaped terraced sections, adding to its beauty.
It is most noted as the original burial place of D. H. Lawrence after moving to Vence to seek treatment for tuberculosis. His body was exhumed five years later and his ashes were moved to Taos, New Mexico, USA.
