English Oak Memorial Bookcases

Each piece is made to clients exact (and often exacting) requirements!  If you already have your memorial book, please let us know the dimension – when open – and we will make your church a memorial bookcase to fit it.  We are more than happy to work in conjunction with your church Architect where necessary.

English Oak Cupboard

Bespoke cupboard made for St Mary's Church, Old Basing, which is a Grade 1 listed building, in Hampshire.

The cupboard was made from carefully selected quarter sawn English oak throughout. The side panels were arranged in the order that they were cut from the plank to emphasise the beauty of the grain. The tracery on the doors was a direct copy of the windows under which the cupboard was to be positioned. Heavy duty adjustable shelves were provided to accommodate the specific requirements of the storage boxes, together with the hymn and prayer books. Because the church had under-floor heating, 50mm of Celotex was discretely incorporated into the base of the cupboard in order to protect the contents. Solid polished brass hinges locks and bolts were fitted as standard, along with magnets invisibly set within both the door and door frames (top and bottom) to give a 'soft-close' action.

The items below were commissioned for St Mary’s Church Ickworth (within the grounds of Ickworth House). The church is owned by the Ickworth Church Conservation Trust and was recently restored after lying dormant for thirty years, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage.
