This is the French Roll of Honour Database for the Great War.
I have not really used it yet, it will require a nominal roll of the fallen to start accessing the database as unlike the CWGC the researcher cannot search by place of burial.
Extract from Webpage;
Dead for France puce

This database gives access to informations about more than 1,3 millions soldiers who died during World War I and obtained the special distinction "killed in action" (in french "Mort pour la France").

These informations were recorded by french war veterans administration just after the war. This database is the result of the digitalization and indexation of these records nowadays preserved by the ministry of defence (direction of memory, heritage and archives).

The "Mort pour la France" distinction is granted under the terms of the invalidity pensions and war victims code.

It will be possible to add data or modify this base on request of administration or any person according to french law.
