Wish you were here
In the middle of 2014 we were approached by a client who required a bench with an extra wide centre slat to accommodate an existing and very wide bronze plaque. This plaque was engraved with the very moving words of the song â€œWish You Were Hereâ€ by Pink Floyd and was dedicated to a young man who had died aged 19. The client stressed the need for the bench to conform to the highest of standards as he was a cabinet maker. We were awarded the commission.
The bench design was modified to accommodate the plaque and the bench was delivered to a delighted client who sent us the words of appreciation shown below.
“From my first conversation with Graham at Oxford Memorial Benches, through to delivery, the service was faultless. As a cabinet maker myself I was looking for a product that would satisfy my exacting standards, and I wasnâ€™t disappointed. Not only was every detail sensitively and professionally handled, but the standard bench design was altered to accommodate my specifications and an existing commemorative plaque from a previous memorial bench. The standard and quality of the work was fantastic, communication throughout the build was excellent and the delivery was bang on time. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Oxford Memorial Benches to anyone. If you are looking for a memorial bench, look no further. My sincerest thanks to Graham and his team.”
