The Northern Cemetery (Cimetière du Nord), located outside the city following the hygienist reforms of the Age of Enlightenment, is the final resting place of the great families of Reims, regardless of whether they are Catholic, Protestant or Jewish.

From the mid-19th century, a number of notable figures created impressive funerary monuments, marking a certain reputation amongst writers, military figures, magistrates, “men of science”, industrialists and many more.

Many of these surnames have been forgotten but the names associated with the champagne houses remain well known: Heidsieck, Krug, Lanson, Pommery, Roederer, to name a few.

One of the most exceptional monuments can be found behind the Sainte- Croix chapel (listed as a historic monument), which is richly decorated and has an eclectic architectural style. It is the vault where Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, known as “Veuve Clicquot” (Widow Clicquot) (1777-1866), rests.
