French burials

Hello, I have been researching my French relatives and have been unable to find any cemeteries that they may have been buried. I know in Germany, when you bought a plot, it was only for so many years unless you paid for extra years. After the allotted time was up, they moved the bones to an ossuary, to make room for other people to be buried. Would this be the same for France?

I have several family names: Ardigo, mainly in the Nice area, Haye and DeBrie in Nord-pas-du-Calais and Meurthe-et-Moselle.

Yes, France did the same. Sometimes the cemetery has records but that's a bit of a catch-22 if you don't know which cemetery.
