Milton Regis WW1 Memorial

Elliott Brotherton, of eB sculpture Ltd, was commissioned to design and construct a new WW1 war memorial for Milton Regis, Sittingbourne. The war memorial was rededicated at a ceremony, 25 years after it was destroyed in the Great Storm. The original memorial was destroyed by a falling tree, leaving only a single remaining stone for locals to pay their respects to. In 2008 eB sculpture, along with other masonry companies, presented ideas and designs to the Milton Regis War Memorial Committee and Elliott was finally selected to create the new war memorial. He stayed in contact while funds were being raised and in January 2012 he was given the go-ahead to start production, thanks to an anonymous donation through the Sunday Telegraph’s Lest We Forget campaign. Elliott worked to create, carve and construct the 18ft war memorial, with his main aim to complete it before this year’s Remembrance Sunday. The completion date happened to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Great Storm which destroyed the original memorial. The new memorial is made of Portland limestone with welsh slate plaques and weighs approximately 4.5 tonnes
