Take a look through a selection of projects Mossfords Memorials have carried out, displaying our expert
skillset in memorial masonry and showing the quality of work we can produce.
National Memorial Arboretum
The Royal Welsh memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire signifies remembrance and and peace for those who were lost and ensures that the memorial will endure for years to come. An important location of all members of the Regiment, especially during periods of remembrance..
The design of the new Llanelli War Memorial memorial has been chosen to balance and compliment the existing Memorial, whilst being relevant to the present. It features the names of the Llanelli men who were killed on operational duty in any of the conflicts since the Second World War.
The memorial was unveiled on the 4th November 2016; units from across Wales attended the ceremony and the Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed, Miss Sara Elinor Edwards, laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen as well as families of those whose names are inscribed on the memorial.
The Royal Marines Boulder
The Royal Marines Boulder commemorates the troops who have trained on there since 1940 and the Corps connection with Gibraltar.
The stone overlooks the area which was covered by Dalditch Camp in WW2. Here Royal Marines trained in preparation for the D-day landings. It stands above an old rifle range which was part of the camp and also over looks the modern day endurance course which is one of the Commando tests.
Littlehampton War Memorial
Mossfords has recently had the pleasure of restoring a war memorial in Littlehampton, West Sussex. The monument contains 236 names listed by rank, surname and initials of the men who tragically lost their lives during World War I.
Over the years, the memorial had weathered and been embedded with biological growths and carbon deposits, resulting in a run-down appearance.
The cast bronze plaques on the sides of the monument that list names of the fallen have also been carefully cleaned and treated using a specialist crystalline Wax which was developed and is recommended by the British Museum. One additional name was also added to the role of honour by cleverly matching the original bronze and font styles.
A poultice solution was applied to the stained masonry surrounding the plaques to remove the Verdigris stains from the bronze. The surrounding area was also freshened with the new white chippings, replacing the weathered and dirty originals.
