Soizy-aux-Bois National Cemetery holds the remains of soldiers who died for France during the First Battle of the Marne (September 1914), mainly soldiers killed in action at the Château de Mondement and in the Saint-Gond marshes. Established after the battles, the cemetery was redesigned in 1924 to receive the bodies of soldiers exhumed from municipal cemeteries across the region. Covering 610 sqm, the cemetery holds the remains of 1,692 French soldiers contained in the two ossuaries.
