'J. B. CLÉMENT 1836 – 1903 AUTEUR DE "LE TEMPS DES CERISES'
As suggested on his tomb – which is very difficult to find, but impossible if you consult the new guide to the cemetery: it's in fact tucked right away in the 75th division, nowhere near the suggested (and not even indicated) 9th: a rare case of the earlier map triumphing over the new. Jean Baptiste Clément, as his tomb highlights, is best remembered for his song 'Le Temps des cerises', which was written in 1868 and has strong links to the Paris Commune of 1871. This link is to a modern version this this still popular song: Geike Arnaert: Le Temps des cerises
