These sixteen are the first martyrs of the French Revolution that have been recognized.
guillotined on 17 July 1794 at the Place du Trône Renversé (modern Place de la Nation) in Paris, France
Before their execution they knelt and chanted the "Veni Creator", as at a profession, after which they all renewed aloud their baptismal and religious vows.
The heads and bodies of the martyrs were interred in a deep sand-pit about thirty feet square in a cemetery at Picpus.
As this sand-pit was the receptacle of the bodies of 1298 victims of the Revolution, there seems to be no hope of their relics being recovered.
Five secondary relics are in the possession of the Benedictines of Stanbrook, Worcestershire.
