Frankcom memorial - This memorial is in a poor state having many parts missing and the main part fixed to the wall with ferrous fixings. It is necessary to completely dismantle it and remove it from the wall, restore those parts that have been retrieved over the years to their correct positions, clean and conserve the remainder, provide a sound and secure damp proofed seating on the wall and refix with stainless steel fixings.

The marble surfaces will be cleaned using a solution made up of water, white spirit and a conservation grade detergent.

The construction of the memorial is in layers. The backing panels consist of Bath stone surfaced with a very thin marble veneer to which the memorial facing elements are attached.

The cracks in the marble facings will be thoroughly cleaned and filled with a type of plaster mix which also provides adhesion.
