Established after the fighting in August 1914, the national war cemetery of Reillon contains the bodies of soldiers who were killed in the clashes at Vézouze and the Lorraine front. It also bears witness to the extreme violence of the operations of summer 1914. This remembrance site contains the bodies of 1,324 French soldiers, 370 of which were laid to rest in two ossuaries. Alongside these soldiers are buried two French soldiers killed in June 1940. There are two monuments at this site to honour the memory of those who died in the service of the 223rd and 333rd Infantry Regiments.
The cemetery is adjacent to a German cemetery containing 5,428 bodies, 2,842 from the First World War including 1,873 in an ossuary, and 2,586 soldiers from the Second World War, including 330 in a collective grave.
