Meet the Team

Rooted in the Great British Craft Tradition, our makers are highly regarded artisans in their chosen fields.  All memorials are designed by the Elysium creative team and the individual craftspeople best suited to create your bespoke memorial are then selected. The process of collaboration often employs the knowledge and skills of up to 5 makers on any given piece.

The creative sensitivity and sensibility of our Elysium team support you throughout the design and making of your unique memorial at what can be a very difficult time.  We take the time to listen; understand the person whose life you wish to commemorate; and help filter all the information you give us in order to create something beautiful which captures the essence and personality of that person.

The finished memorial is an original piece of artwork in its own right, greater than the sum of its parts, which reflects the Elysium ethos and our unique house style.

We are constantly expanding the portfolio of Elysium artists and are currently working on some new ranges to include furniture and silverware which we plan to launch in the not too distant future.
