At Elysium we make personal, bespoke memorials which are beautiful, unique pieces of artwork in their own right, yet the origin of their creation honours the life of a loved one.


Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.

Rabindranath Tagore

At Elysium Memorials our aims are:

  • To produce contemporary memorials for the home and garden. Artworks that include sculpture, glass memorial pieces or urns for funeral ashes.
  • To support our bereaved clients through the grieving process by listening to them and producing something completely unique for them, that speaks about the person they’ve lost.
  • To design and make everything to be unique. All our memorial products are made by hand in the studio in Somerset, so there will never be two exactly the same.
  • To offer a friendly and personal service. We are always happy to do whatever we can to make sure a client’s urn, garden memorial, or memorial for the home really fits the brief and truly reflects the person it represents.
  • To celebrate and encourage the incredible creative talent and craftsmanship we have here in the UK. We are based in Frome, Somerset and the artists we are lucky enough to work with at Elysium Memorials are amongst the best in their given fields.
  • To bring something completely original to the funeral and cremation product market that isn’t mass produced or imported. We make memorials and urns that are truly bespoke and 100% Made in Britain.

Jos’s Story

Kate made a maquette first, then the final piece in Portland stone and glass. It captures the essence of my Dad – what mattered to him and what connected us. I love it.
