Description of "The Last Post: Inscriptions on French Graves in India"

While some of the British cemeteries in India are well known, not much is known about the Portuguese and the French cemeteries in India. This work deals with the French cemeteries and graves in India. Major French cemeteries in India are located in the erstwhile French colonies in India- Pondicherry, Karikal, Chandernagore, Yanam and Mahe, while there are also some scattered onces in different other places. These include graves of Jesuit Priests, Sisters of Cluny and Sisters of St. Joseph of Tabres. This is an attempt to create a data base of the inscriptions on the French graves in India.
