On top of the cylindrical tomb shaped as a temple there is a Latin incription: SCIENTIA ET AMORE PUEROS SALVAVIT.
The two lateral bas-relieves, by French sculptor Auguste Maillard1, represents Grancher vaccinating a boy under the gaze of Louis Pasteur and his charitable institution Oeuvre de préservation de l'enfance. Inside the tomb there is a bust of Grancher which is almost invisible through the dirty windows.
Lastly, a long French inscription - placed in 2003 - gives a biographical sketch of Grancher and his wife Rosa Abreu's lives.
