Monuments

Ecclesiastical monuments.
The diversity of monuments found in ecclesiastical buildings, from local Parish Churches to Cathedrals, reflects not only people and events in local and national history but is also a significant document of the development of sculptural styles.
An essential first step in the conservation of a monument is the production of a detailed report documenting; condition, causes of deterioration and proposals for treatment.

Taylor Pearce have considerable experience with conserving all types of monuments and also appreciate the need to maintain such artefacts as part of a functional place of worship. We are capable of carrying out a range of treatments from minimal intervention to full dismantling and rebuilding where necessary.

War memorials.
The growing public awareness of the importance of war memorials throughout the country has led to an increased interest in their preservation. Taylor Pearce have worked on numerous War Memorials, often in close contact with organisations such as ‘Friends of War Memorials’.

Public commemorative sculpture.
The thousands of public sculptures commemorating historical figures and events also demand conservation. The sheer scale of some of these monuments can mean significant amounts of conservation work are required. More often than not it is regular care that is required and Taylor Pearce have carried out routine maintenance on numerous public sculptures throughout London.
