Since he died in Paris, it is quite probably that he was buried there:

Lucas died at the age of 49 (3 October 1891) from a severe infection following a freak accident: A waiter had wounded his cheek with a broken plate at a banquet of the Association française pour l'avancement des sciences (AFAS). Edouard Lucas is buried in Montmartre Cemetery.

Édouard Lucas (1842–1891), mathematician
