The Value Of A Memorial Bench

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Memorial BenchThere are many beautiful ways to customize grave markers, but traditional headstones are not for everyone. For those who wish to be cremated, with their ashes spread in a special place, or those who simply want an alternative to the traditional grave memorial, a bench may be something to think about.

Memorial benches are usually made from stone, often granite, and are simple, elegant places where anyone can sit and enjoy a quiet moment. Each bench is different, and different types of granite and stone can be used to personalize the experience. Fairview Monument Company, for instance, offers a rose granite bench, jet black bench, and an Indian red bench as well as benches that are finished or topped with wood like mahogany. Each of these benches has a different color, and can be made into different bench forms to fit the preferences of the deceased or his or her family members.

GraniteGrave markers and urns to hold ashes are made from a number of different materials, including metals and strong stones. Granite is one of the most common stones that’s used for grave markers, and there are a number of reasons why it may be a good choice for your loved one.

It’s affordable. Unlike some of the other stones used for grave markers, granite isn’t expensive because it isn’t valued as highly as certain metals or more precious stones. That means that it most likely won’t be the target of thieves and that, depending on the size of the marker you want, it’s likely in your price range.

Some of the most common are hard stones like granite, which often have several different colors and textures that you can choose from. Aside from granite, bronze is often used to mark the grave of someone special.

Unlike granite, however, bronze is a little less common. It’s durable and easy to maintain, and is often used in special situations and circumstances, or by request. One of the ways that bronze can be used in a special situation is to mark the grave of a military member or veteran. These bronze markers often have a high level of significance in order to honor the military member and his or her service to the nation.
