War memorial Feb 03, 2017
This memorial, including a sculpture by Arthur George Walker, can be found outside Derby's Guildhall. It was constructed in 1924 as a lasting memorial to those soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War. The memorial also features an additional inscription recognising losses in the Second World War. The sculpture is of a woman holding a baby in her arms, possibly meant to signify the Virgin Mary or a bereaved war widow.

The nearby Grade II listed Guildhall, also in the Market Place, is now a theatre with seating for 244 people.
