Celebrating 30 years since the charity Memorials by Artists was founded, this exhibition looks at the stories behind some of the most moving memorials created in that time.

We are drawn to capture a memory. For centuries, we have commemorated and mourned the passing of lives through memorials.

Presenting a time capsule of beautiful memorials drawn and carved by hand by leading letter carvers, this exhibition will show how individual lives can be celebrated with sensitive design and beautiful lettering.

The exhibition is designed to uplift and to prompt us to consider how we would like to be remembered. The working drawings and designs of lettering artists are displayed, as well as original works from the centre's Art & Memory collection.

Among the exhibits on display is the memorial work created with the running vest of Stephen Lawrence, kindly loaned by the Lawrence family.
