Our Resident Memorials

Sometimes it is not possible for memorials at risk to be placed back into their original setting. This can be for a number reasons such as the building is to be demolished, there is a risk of theft or vandalism or a change of use/ownership of the premises.

In these cases, we are able to take the memorial concerned into our care in the Chancel of All Saints’ Church. There they are mounted on purpose built display stands with information boards detailing their provenance.

It is these memorials which are available to view on our open days.
