Custodian: Presumed to be the Parochial Church Council

Local authorities:
From WW1: Stanley Parish Council; Shardlow Rural District Council; Derbyshire County Council.
From 1974: Stanley and Stanley Common Parish Council; Erewash Borough Council; Derbyshire County Council.
Smalley Common United Methodist Free Church closed in 2003 and the congregation merged with that of the Church of All Saints. It is presumed that the memorial was moved at about that time. The Methodist Church has subsequently been demolished and houses built on the site.

13th December, 2013: The memorial was surveyed by Roy Branson and Alan Willmot. It was in fair condition and well cared for.
