The William Kennish Memorial Trust - - The William Kennish Memorial Trust has been formed to raise funds to place a Manx Granite Memorial to William Kennish in New York. It is planned to utilise a local Granite and to carve and engrave it on the Isle of Man before shipping it to New York, to be in place ready for the 155th anniversary of William Kennish’s death on 19th March 2017. The Trust has been set up by Roy Moore, the TT and golfing commentator for Manx Radio and great-great-great grand-nephew of William Kennish.
