A bench memorial is a loving way to remember you loved one and feel as though you are sitting with them and close to them when they are used. Often people will place a bench memorial in their gardens so they can have a frequent reminder of the love they have lost. They can be installed around a garden bed in tribute to the deceased surrounded by their favorite flowers or under the shade of their favorite tree in the garden they used to love tending to.
Style & Design
The style and design of the bench can be customized to suit what you think would best reflect your loved one. It can be shaped either in the classic park bench style, a flat backless seat, styled to look like a couch or a seat attached to a solid faced memorial. They can be made in either single seats or longer benches with space for a few people. The style and design will be influenced by the intended location of the seat and if there are any restrictions in place for the location.
Memorial benches can be made from a range of materials, most commonly being timber, concrete, metal and stone. A combination of each of these materials can be catered for and altered dependent on the budget and intended location of the bench memorial. There are different care methods for each of the materials, which our team of dedicated professionals will be sure to advise of when the final product has been completed and accepted. We want to make sure that the bench seat looks its best for many years to come in respect of your loved one and are happy to provide guidance on the most durable materials to help ensure this.
A simple plaque can be attached to the bench seat that you have selected, or alternatively you can have your bench seat engraved, which we will explain about later. Plaques can be attached to any area of your bench memorial that is desired, and we are happy to give guidance on the best locations for visibility and low maintenance. Alternatively, some bench seats are attached to a tombstone, which will have the tribute to your loved one there. This allows for a more detailed account of your loved one’s life and their contributions to the world.
Engravings on a bench seat can be a beautiful way to tribute the loss of your loved one. This can be in the form of their favorite song, poem, saying or any other script that represents the life they have lived. Engravings can also be of images and objects that relate to the person who is being tribute in the bench seat. As a seat often offers more space than a tombstone, it can leave room for creativity to make the bench seat something very special and unique. We have the relevant tools, equipment and skill to meet your desired script and look.
