Search Cimetière Alphonse-Karr:

The Cimetière Alphonse-Karr, named for a notable early resident, writer Jean-Baptist Alphonse Karr (1808-1890), was planned in the late 1880's to replace two previous town cemeteries which had outgrown their capacity. The plans were approved in 1889 and construction began in 1890. The concierge's dwelling was rebuilt in 1913 and the grand entrance was constructed in 1919. The plan of the cemetery consists of the original section to the northeast and two extensions, one made in the 1930's and another in the 1960's, to the south-west. The older section is organized around a central aisle lined with cypresses, intersected by two perpendicular paths, forming the approximation of a cross of Lorraine. In addition to a section devoted to French military graves, primarily from the Second World War, there is one Commonwealth War Grave from World War I, which can be found in a small semi-circular plot 100 metres on the right hand side of the first left path after turning right at the entrance.
