On 30th January 2016 Mr Robert W Stimpson, author, and Mr Roy Moore, Kennish Manx-born descendant, sportsman and TT Motorcycle Race Radio Commentator, formed the William Kennish Memorial Trust. The trust deed was formally witnessed by two independent persons and was configured following independent legal advice to meet Isle of Man Trust legislation.

The Trust  operated as a Non-Profit Organisation with the primary object to place a Manx granite memorial to William Kennish in New York on 19th March 2017 - the 155th annuiversary of his death.

The fund-raising target of £5,000 was met and the stone placed at a memorial service held at the graveside on 19th March 2017. Supporters were provided with a full account of the expenditure and a copy of a booklet recording the activities leading up to the memorial service.

Having completed all of its objectives and obligations the William Kennish Memorial Trust was closed following a meeting of its trustees on February 10th 2021.
