  • If you're thinking of adding a plaque to your furniture, you can also join our new My Place and Story service. This service adds a QR code alongside your plaque or engraving.  When this code is scanned by a smartphone, it'll take the visitor to a web page that gives more background and history to the person or place the bench is remembering. It's a great way to expand and say more than you can on a plaque, and really tell somebody the full story. Want to know more about how this service works?

    Once you have completed your order, we will be in touch shortly afterwards to help set up your My Space and Story account

    Thank you, the second bench has been delivered and is placed in the beer garden at Preston Marina.

    We spent a lot of time here together and I still do. So it will be a lovely spot to sit and remember.


  4. Susan E.

    Dear Rob, Kym, Nicola

    I just want to say a huge thankyou to you and all of your team. I have seen for the first time this week my late husbands bench I purchased from yourselves, it is superb!
    It has just been positioned at the Breadsall Priory golf course and will be well used.

    It is a fitting memorial to my dear late husband David.


  5. David G

    David commented on our recent Kings Award win and sent this patriotic picture of a Dale bench he purchased from us back in 2017

    “This is fantastic news. The memorial bench we got for my father-in-law is still going strong”.

  6. Julie Littlejohn

    Dear Nicola,

    Dear Nicola,

    Please pass on our sincere thanks to all the staff involved at TDP. It was a pleasure to do business with your company and such prompt and helpful service too.

    The bench duly arrived and the local Hospital are delighted with it.

    The engraving on the bench is even better than we expected!

    A big thank you to you all. We would recommend you any time.

    Kind regards,

    Sue Collins (and her brother and sister)

  10. John R

    It’s great to see our benches in community spaces so thanks to the amazing fundraising efforts by all who were a part of Middleton by Wirksworth – Queens Jubilee Celebrations.

    John from the group commented “Excellent product and customer service from TDP helped us mark the Jubilee last year”.

  11. Diane P

    Dear Nicola,

    I just wanted to say thanks ever so much for the memorial bench that you built and delivered for me.

    I went to visit it this week with my daughters, where it has been installed in Anglesey and we were so pleased with both the quality and look of the bench, it’s just want we wanted and a really fitting tribute to my late husband. The plaque that you added to it, to my specifications is also absolutely perfect.

    I have also been so impressed with the service provided by TDP, and how responsive the company has been to my requests and queries about the order. It was all dealt with in a really professional and efficient way. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, courteous and knew what they were talking about, yourself included.

    I have no hesitation in recommending your company to others and indeed have already done so.

  12. Kelvyn G

    We are all overwhelmed with how brilliant the memorial bench for our departed golf buddy (Richard Utton) looks! its great quality very sturdy & it will last a life time.

    The service we received was also first class it purchasing the bench to make sure we received exactly what was required.

    We now have it situated at Rookery Park Golf Clubs next to the 18th tee box.

  13. Eileen

    Hello Nicola,

    Just wanted to let you know that we are absolutely delighted with our bench. It is so well made and sturdy. We installed it yesterday at the cemetery. I will be sitting on it often.

    I’d also like to say that the service you offer was first class too. Great communication, correspondence and delivery service up here to the Highlands. Well done and thank you.


  14. Mary K

    Dear Nicola

    The bench arrived this morning and has now been set up in the designated space. It looks great and I’m sure will be enjoyed by many residents of and visitors to Soulton. Mr Tunnell, who has been doing the paperwork and communications with you since I handed over to him, congratulated me on ‘landing on an excellent and very professional and helpful company’! I don’t know how I found you on Google but I’m glad I did and will recommend you to any other potential bench-users I come across.

    With best wishes, and my thanks.


    Mary ordered a 1.8m Dale to commemorate the reign of the Queen Elizabeth II. This is a copy of the plaque text.

  15. Lydia J.

    Hello Michelle,

    I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge “Thank You” to everyone at your company who was involved with processing my order, making the memorial bench and delivering it to me.
    Its now in place at the recreation ground in the village my mother had lived in for over 35 years, it looks amazing and is of such high quality I could not have been happier, I am so pleased I chose your company.

    Everyone who has seen it and sat on it so far is amazed and very impressed by the standard of work and how sturdy it really is. Even the soft ground anchor kit was well made and substantial.
    Thank you all so much.
    Kind regards,

  16. J Ives

    Dear Nicola,

    The bench we ordered is to commemorate my daughter who died from cancer. It was safely delivered on Friday. It is beautiful. Thank you and your company very much.

    I enclose 2 more photos of the bench and a little story.
    We had a little memorial gathering of our family on Sunday and I laid some flowers on the bench. On Monday I had to pass through Brill village so I stopped for a brief sit on the bench. Someone else had laid a posy of flowers there too. No idea who it was from.

  17. Ian K

    Ian works with the ‘Breath of fresh air’ Charity and ordered two 1.8 Dales and two Ipstone planters for the courtyard at Glenfield Hospital.

    Thank you for all your help in getting them done and dispatched for delivery today. Once the planters are planted, we will take more photos and send them.

    We are really pleased with them as were the nursing staff who will benefit from somewhere to sit and relax also a place for patients and their families.

  18. Shirley H.

    Thank you so much for all your help and especially the ladies today who helped regarding delivery.
    The bench itself is just what we wanted and we are impressed with the quality.
    Unfortunately it was raining but I have enclosed a photo with my daughter.

    This is so special for us to remember my husband.


  19. M Clements

    Just to let you know that the memorial bench arrived safely this morning and looks absolutely perfect situated in front of a flower bed in the garden at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society.

    Thank you so much for your kind help and so pleased the bench arrived a week before our grandson’s birthday.
    Kind regards
    M. Clements

  20. Karen H. Solihull

    We are so delighted with our bench it exceeds our expectations and the customer service you provided was excellent.
    Thank you so much.

  21. Louise B

    Hello Nicola,

    Big thank you to all! We are all overwhelmed with how brilliant this bench looks! Absolutely over the moon with it! Such a lovely way to commemorate our loved one.

    Thank you again to all at your team.

    Kind regards,

  22. Emily

    Dear Nicola and everyone else who helped/communicated with me over with this – Anne, Michelle, Lindsey and Rob,

    I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the bench and all the organisation around delivery. You were all so patient and helpful at every stage. The delivery person was great and so helpful too.

    We couldn’t be more happy with the bench and the plaque – it looks perfect as the replacement for the bench which had been there for 37 years. Let’s hope it might outlast that one – it seems very resilient and less likely to be washed out to sea (that happened, 5 years ago, to the last one but it was found 60 miles up the coast and returned).

    Here are a couple of pictures from Port Isaac – I imagine you don’t always see your benches in their destinations spots…

    Many thanks again,


  23. Ian H.

    Good morning TDP

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you did to get my wife’s memorial bench to me in super fast time and amazing customer service.

    We raised £2400 on the day for our local cancer charity and thank you all for playing your part, my daughter, son and I are truly grateful.

    Kind regards


  24. David Wardrop-White

    Hello Anne
    Just a line to thank you all at TDP for the manufacture and shipping of the very attractive bench which was delivered to Tayvallich, Argyll, yesterday.

    This is in memory of my late wife and is the second TDP bench at this remote location.

    The delivery driver was incredibly helpful, including unwrapping the bench and helping to position it. He had phoned me the previous Friday to confirm details too.
    Bench much admired by all the family.

    Best regards
    David Wardrop-White

  25. Lesley, Hempnall

    Evening Kym
    I just wanted to let you know that we are overjoyed with our bench. Mum said she was quite choked. Perhaps we will be back in touch to order another for our village.
    Thank you for all your time and effort to get the inscription just perfect.
    Best wishes

    Good Morning Lesley,

    I hope you are well and I’m so glad you all like it – it is definitely worth taking the time to make sure the inscription is right, as I know how much this can mean and I’m glad I was able to help 😊

  26. Lisa F.

    Huge thank you- bench delivered today and positioned on my chosen site on golf course- 15th tee- what a view!

    I will be spending many moments sitting here, and so will our daughters. I’m thrilled to bits with it – and so happy it won’t start looking neglected like wooden benches too- this bench deserves all the love.

    I cant thank you enough for your support during the ordering process

    Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas


    Good Morning Lisa,

    That’s great news and the view is beautiful 😊

    I hope you will all have many happy moments sat there taking in that stunning view (dodging golf balls!)

    I’m also glad we could help and we love to see where our benches find a home.

    Kym, TDP

  27. Jennifer R.

    Dear Kym,
    I just wanted to send a thank you for the lovely memorial bench you provided for my aunt on the IOW.

    It was much admired by many people at her memorial service on 20th November. It is in a lovely position in the churchyard with a view overlooking the river Medina, a view that she loved, and a church where she spent many hours during her lifetime. I have attached some photos so that you can see the lovely spot.

    I would also like to say that I have been very impressed by the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of everyone I have spoken to in your company and would recommend you to anyone.



  28. Kathy M

    Hi Michelle

    Just wanted to send a big Thank you to everyone involved in the making and for the smooth delivery of our bench.


    It has now been installed, and although it was an emotional day, we are so pleased to have a beautiful place and a comfortable seat to remember our loved one.
    I thought you would like to see some photos of your bench in it’s resting place.
    Once again cannot thank you all enough in this matter

    Kind regards

  29. Andrew M.

    Delivered a while ago now the bench and planter are fantastic, but with covid restrictions we have only just set up our bench.
