The Thiepval app allows you to discover more about the individuals who fought and died around the Somme during the Great War.

The app is a powerful tool that allows you to search for all the casualties (over 72,000) who are commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial. This includes a detailed plan of the memorial that allows you to quickly find the panel on which their name is inscribed. Only individuals commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial are part of this app.

The app also offers a timeline where you can view the number of casualties per year, month and day, with the possibility to obtain a list of individuals who died on a specific day.

Finally the app offers over 900 individual stories of those who fought and died on the Somme.

A treasure indeed!

Thanks to everyone at the CWGC for this great app. Finding a Grandpa and a Great Uncle was made so easy when we visited. Thanks, too, for the work done by Pam and Ken Linge recording the stories of the fallen for the future.

Once downloaded you don't need an Internet connection - big plus!

Name-search too inflexible but name-finder is good

Only just got this, so my review is a First Impression.
Using my mobile, I input 1st & last names of my great uncle, whose name I know to be commemorated there. There were no matches. When I dropped the 1st name, his full name was listed.
Having said that, the name-finder worked well: I would be able to find his name on this massive memorial, using that.
I haven't spotted how I might contribute to his Story page, which is currently greyed out.
