According to a notice published around the time of his death, Henri Léon Lebesgue is buried in the cemetery of Gouvieux, a small town in the Oise department of France.

H. Fehr, "Henri Lebesgue 1875-1941", L'Enseignement mathématique, Vol. 38 (1939-1940), pp. 330-332 (scan online):

Nous avons la profonde douleur de faire part à nos lecteurs de la perte que la Rédaction de « L'Enseignement mathématique » vient de faire en la personne de M. Henri Lebesgue, Membre de l'Institut, mort à Paris le 26 julliet 1941, à l'âge de 66 ans, de suites d'une grave maladie. L'inhumation s'est faite au cimetière de Gouvieux (Oise).

The online records of the cemetery administration of Gouvieux show a plot for a Lebesgue family in the Cimetière Ancien (Old Cemetery) of Gouvieux.
