A fine, elegant, and informative tribute sculpture in bronze and stone has been designed for the garden at the Assembly Rooms in Bath, across from the house where Phillip and his wife lived. The community of Bath supports this project and the dedication was achieved on Saturday July 12th, 2014, in the presence of Dame Marie Bashir AO, Governor of New South Wales, The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Bath, Sir Christopher Benson DL Chairman of the Britain-Australia Society Education Trust and other dignitories.
Former Governor Arthur Phillip and his wife are buried in St Nicholas Church at Bathampton. Panels in the church describe Phillip’s extraordinary achievements.

Memorial stone in The Nave of Westminster Abbey.
The Dean and Chapter of the Abbey have attended the dedication of the memorial stone on Wednesday July 9th. One wreath was laid by HRH Prince Phillip. A second on behalf of the Fellowship of the First Fleet, Denis Smith, Vice President. The dedication was followed by a special reception adjacent to the Abbey.
As well as marking in stone Phillip’s place in history, it is our intention to create a lasting and living memorial by sponsoring bright and worthy students for higher education who in his name will enhance the exchange between Australia and Britain, two great nations with a shared heritage and unique links in the fields of law, science, commerce, sports and the arts.
