This First World War French military cemetery contains the remains of the soldiers killed during or after the battles of August 1914 for the conquest of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse. In the bend just before the French military cemetery of Lobbes-Heuleu stands a pyramidal monument in blue stone. It was erected in honour of Captain Henri Frédéric Thomire, officer in the French 144th infantry regiment. He died in battle on 23rd August 1914. Many of the soldiers buried there came from the regions around Bordeaux and Paris, Brittany, and Vendée. In parallel, a few families built memorials for their brothers, sons, and/or husbands fallen in combat.
