This included cutting out of damaged sections of stone Elmore war memorial before works © Elmore Parish Council, 2012using hand tools to create indents for the insertion of matching stone. The concrete base of the memorial was also damaged, so these sections were cut away and replaced with concrete which Elmore war memorial repairs © Elmore Parish Council, 2012matched the existing as closely as possible. Finally, the chainlink fence was protected with SmartWater. All bedding and pointing was carried out with lime mortar.
