Thiepval Memorial

The largest British war memorial honors the 70,000 soldiers who were reported missing during the Battle of the Somme.

Thiepval Memorial The Embodiment of Loss

Of the hundreds of thousands killed during the Battle of the Somme, over 70,000 British and South African soldiers were reported missing. The remains of around half of these have been recovered, but because of the ferocity of the fighting, could not be identified. Unveiled in 1932, this 45 tall memorial is the largest Commonwealth war memorial in the world. Built from brick, the names of the missing are engraved on panels of Portland stone. Nearby, the information center and museum gives insight into the battle through artefacts, and unique multimedia exhibits.
