Thiescourt National Military Cemetery holds the remains of soldiers who died during the various battles in Oise between 1914 and 1918. Created when the fighting stopped in 1918, this cemetery was expanded in 1920 and 1921 to take the bodies of other soldiers exhumed from isolated graves or various temporary cemeteries in the Oise department. It contains the bodies of 1,258 French soldiers, 711 of which are laid to rest in individual graves. Two ossuaries hold the mortal remains of 547 unknown soldiers.
