I believe both such lists exist at ONCE. Or at least they should.

As illustrated by the examples above, the ONCE lists are (yet?) incomplete. On the other hand, the work of building up these lists is quite laborious and likely to take a very long time.

It is not very difficult. Every member can send the data they have to one member, who would just have to organise the information (i can do that if nobody else wants).

I agree with Dragos03 but as I said before, only the locations. You have something to start with, from my point of view and there is more to come.
I also think that we should make it official at some point.

Not on the ONCE lists either: the WWI Mausoleum in Iaşi designed by Ioan Balau and Henri Coandă.

Another location on the list: the cemetery and monument from Valea Plopilor village, on the road to Alexandria.
It was raised for the officers and soldiers who lost their lives in the Neajlov battle.
There are also small monuments in Bragadiru, Iepuresti, Ghimpati.

Add a small monument (for the village heroes) in Clinceni to your list.

Monuments for local heroes can be encountered in almost every community. I saw such monuments in Stefanesti (near Bucharest), Finta village, Butimanu, Bolintin Vale, Moara Vlasiei, Jiblea, Bilciuresti (a beautiful one actually).
This summer I went to visit the mausoleum from Marasesti. Unfortunately the small museum nearby was closed.
I wonder if there are any monuments in the villages of Doaga, Strejescu, Diocheti.

Of course there are small monuments in every village. I thought the small monuments in Bragadiru, Iepuresti, Ghimpati were also for local heroes and that is why I mentioned the one in Clinceni, which is in the same area with the ones mentioned above. Are they commemorating a special event?

Bucharest also has a monument for 'the last sentry of the capital in 1916'.

As it has been stated, virtually every village in Rumania has its own monument for the war dead. This is no different in Transylvanian villages inhabitated mainly by Hungarian ethnics.

About a decade ago I photographed such a monument for the 1914-1918 war dead in the village of Sarateni (Sóvárad), not far from my city of birth, Tg.Mures (Marosvásárhely).

The long list of names are engraved in the tables mounted on all four sides of the obelisc, capped with the Turul bird - the mythological bird of the Magyars.

Not in Rumania, but for Rumanian airmen was erected this monument.
The monument is located in Piest'any, today's Slovakia. The photo shows the official unveiling ceremony, held in 1945.

Victor, Iepuresti and Ghimpati were actually on the wideness (if I may say so) of the front line from Neajlov river. The main battles though, were fought around Valea Plopilor, Letca Veche, Bulbucata and Clejani.
I heard that in Letca Veche (into the woods) there still are some underground shelters.

Here is the monument from Bolintin-Vale for the heroes from ww1 (though I think there was also a squirmish between german and roumanian forces there).
