Cemetery History

Oise-Aisne American Cemetery, at 36.5 acres in extent, is the second largest of eight permanent WWI American cemeteries on foreign soil. Established initially on 2 August 1918 by the 42nd Division as a temporary battlefield cemetery, Congress authorized its retention as a permanent cemetery in 1921.

The majority of the war dead interred at Oise-Aisne died fighting along the Ourcq River and in the area between the cemetery and the Oise River during the Aisne-Marne Offensive and the Oise-Aisne Offensive.

In 1922, the remains of American servicemen buried in the general area west of Tours-Romorantin-Paris-Le-Harve, whose next of kin requested permanent interment overseas, were disinterred and permanently interred at Oise-Aisne American Cemetery. All interments were made by the American Graves Registration Service. The memorial, the chapel, the visitors' room, the office, the Superintendent's quarters, and the service facilities were designed and constructed by the American Battle Monuments Commission.

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.
