The grave of the Bessec family was created near 1920.
The Bessecs are an old family from Rennes, who became famous shoemakers in the region. Their grave in the northern cemetery includes two monuments in Carrara marble.
The first one is realized in a Neo-classical style: the headstone reminds an antique temple front. In the middle, we can see a bronze medallion which represents a family Bessec member, dressed in serviceman and decorated with two medals. He is Maurice Bessec, airman who perished in fight during World-War 1. On the slab, there is a statue that represents a kneeling woman, dressed in antique style and holding a palm leaf (symbol of victory and honor).
The second monument is a truncated column; this symbol, in funeral art, means that life stopped too quickly.
