The headstone is known as Kilkenny Blue Marble: a very hard limestone from Kilkenny, Ireland. Robin was very fond of this stone and we have several sculptures in our garden made from this same rock, carved by Michael Cooper. It was Michael that recommended Martin Cook for the headstone.

It is a project that he, Dooleys singer Jim Dooley and RAF veterans have championed over the past three years, raising £6million for its construction and perpetual upkeep.
Express readers donated £500,000 to the memorial, a sum matched by Sunday Express owner Richard Desmond. Other large contributions came from entrepreneurs Lord Ashcroft and John Caudwell, while tens of thousands of members of the public donated to the caus…
