About the memorial: A cottage homes and land settlement scheme. The project began with the acquisition of about 4 hectares of land on which cottage homes were to be built and let at a low rent to disabled former soldiers. Subsequently up to 19 hectares was acquired on which former service personnel built their own homes The two northern roads are Memorial Road and Somme Road and further roads to the south are Menin Road, Ypres Road and Lens Road It was proposed that residents would buy their plots over a three-year period at a discounted rate. Most of the area has subsequently been redeveloped but the roads remain. The site lies between Kedleston Road and Markeaton Brook but is difficult to describe because it straddles the parish boundary which has been changed. Originally the scheme was managed by a committee, believed to have been called the Disabled Ex-Service Men's Memorial Cottages or the Derby and Derbyshire Memorial Homes and Land Settlement for Disabled ex-Service Men, but this is assumed to have been wound up. The roads are now maintained by the Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council as highway authorities within their respective areas.
