Welcome to fourteeneighteen

Making your unknown soldier known once more



Apologies to prospective clients: our order book has now closed and will remain so throughout October 2017. This is due to a combination of factors [1] we have experienced unprecedented demand for our services throughout July to September and need to concentrate on completing this work; and [2] I (Chris Baker) have a book deadline that I must meet! We’ll be re-opening the order page on this website on 1 November.
