Commonwealth War Graves Commission
The Thiepval Memorial, the Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, bears the names of more than 72,000 officers and men of the United Kingdom and South African forces who died in the Somme sector before 20 March 1918 and have no known grave. Over 90% of those commemorated died between July and November 1916. The memorial also serves as an Anglo-French Battle Memorial in recognition of the joint nature of the 1916 offensive and a small cemetery containing equal numbers of Commonwealth and French graves lies at the foot of the memorial.

[This seems to be different Thomas Auckland] A possible connection there is a Thomas Auckland, born Hartlepool, residence Newcastle, enlisted in Hartlepool, private, Durham Light Infantry 1/9th Battalion, regimental number 7555, killed in action September 15 1916. Location France and Flanders.

His Medal card states the following.
Thomas Auckland, Durham Light Infantry, Private, Regimental Number 5/7555.
Victory medal and British Medal.

Since the name and regimental number are the same perhaps he was missing in action on September 15, 1916 and declared dead November 6, 1916.
