Cemetery History

The 45th Infantry Division liberated the Epinal area on September 21, 1944. A temporary cemetery was established here 15 days later. Subsequently, the ground was selected to be a permanent cemetery site. After the war, bodies in the temporary cemetery were disinterred and then reinterred at the permanent cemetery site. Persons buried here lost their lives in the fighting across central France, the Rhone Valley, the Vosges Mountains, the Rhine Valley, and Germany. They represent 42% of the original burials throughout this region.

Construction of the permanent cemetery at Epinal was completed in the Spring of 1956, and dedicated on 23 July 1956.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
