Quality marble memorials are the mainstay of our 67 year history in the memorial and stone masonry industry. This is reflected in the commissions we have undertaken over the years. Which has included an extensive range of commissions for the Catholic Archdiocese. We are particularly proud to have had the honour of supplying and fixing the simple black slate tomb which marks the final resting place of Derek Worlock, CH, the seventh Archbishop of Liverpool (1976-96) within the beautiful Chapel of St Joseph in the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
Sarsfields are also privileged to have supplied the plinth for the commemorative statue of Captain F. J. “Johnny” Walker which stands at the Pier Head in Liverpool. Captain Walker is famed for his exploits as the most successful anti-submarine warfare commander during the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II. The statue was commissioned by Captain Walker’s Old Boys Association, was sculpted by Tom Murphy and unveiled by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1998.
Marble Quarries In Carrara, Italy
Carrara is a city in the Province of Massa and Carrara (Tuscany, Italy) it is notable for its white or blue grey marble quarried in the area. The material has been quarried for thousands of years and is still quarried to this day, here at Sarsfield Memorials Liverpool this material is used for white marble memorials and statues.
If you visit the area you should visit the quarries they organise tours that take you into the quarries, show you how the blocks are excavated and sawed and you are able to see sculptures being carved, it is a very interesting day out.
