An interesting subject.

Chippenham, Wiltshire has an entire estate named not after battles but from names taken from the town war memorial, covering men who fought in all areas of conflict.

One family living there who lost a son KIA in the 3rd Battle of Ypres named there house 'Ypres' in his memory.

Very late coming to this thread but...

The Chippenham estate street names are listed on my site There are 39 streets named after First and Second war men,

There was a house called Ypres in the town. The name is still visible above the front door. This was the home of the parents of L/Cpl Thomas Henry Powell who was killed at ..... Neuve Chapelle.
