Help find where WWI uncle died

I am writing a book about the exploits of my father and two uncles who served on the Western Front in World War I.

25 July 2017

One of my uncles was killed on the first day of the German Spring Offensive on March 21, 1918, in the triangle Cerizy/Alaincourt/Moÿ de-l’Aisne (south of Saint-Quentin) and I would like to visit on the centenary of his death next year and lay a memorial wreath.

As I expect the location to be private woodland, I need to visit the area to secure permission from the owner.

I do not speak French so can I ask for help from a British expatriate in that area who can help me to trace the spot?
