Soldiers buried at Uranie Cementery in Papeete, Tahiti

Sorry, I don't speak French.
I would like to get in touch with someone who manages the French Marine Nationale section of the Uranie Cementery in Papeete, Tahiti. My Grand Father George Leslie Campbell was a sailor serving on the FS Chevreuil when he died on Feb 14th 1943 in Papeete and was apparently buried at the Uranie Cementary (Marine Nationale section).
I wanted to get it touch with someone from the Nationale who can confirm he is buried there so I can come and visit his grave site.
