This reminded us that whilst many people know we're the best place to get a quality hardwood bench from, there will be many of you out there who have yet to discover our fantastic laser engraving service. We also offer a traditional inlaid lettering service, but recently the laser engraving has become very popular. This is potentially down to the fact that we can now engrave text and images, so customers can now memorialise loved ones with more creative inscriptions.

The old Church was closed in 1926, but not demolished until bomb damage occured during WWII. The site of the old Church was then used to create the memorial gardens, in 1951, marking the foundations of the Church. The garden includes memorials to Charles Wesley which was erected in 1858 after he was buried in 1788.
