French Warship Sunk WW1 by German Sub

I recently read a small notation about a French Warship that was sunk during WW1 in the Med with with the lose of a great part of its 1000 crew. The French Warship was sunk by a German Sub during WW1 and was recently located by accident by a Dutch Survey Crew plotting the route of a proposed submerged gas pipe line.
An ROV took photos of the vessel which is upright and in good condition and is several hundred metres below the surface. The Dutch crew have relocated the proposed gas line to bypass the Warship.
Does anyone have any more info on the ship, its crew etc.

Regards
