A Memorial bench is a wonderful way of celebrating the life of a loved one. To have the bench situated near the grave of a family member is a great source of comfort to all friends and relatives who may visit. We offer a wide range of such benches from our extensive collection.
Our teak benches offer you the choice of 2 sizes, the neat 150cm or the larger 180cm, depending on the space you may have. All the benches have a deep seat to provide comfort and stability. The Windsor range is stylish and simplistic in its design. Our Oxford Cross weave back has a beautiful intricately designed back which will stand out from all other benches. The Winchester has a classic oval shaped back and one of our best sellers is the 6 legged Balmoral bench a very sturdy bench indeed. Our Westminster bench allows the visitor a little more comfort as it has a flat arm enabling the sitter to rest a cup of coffee or tea whilst thinking of their deceased friend or relative.
Most cemeteries and graveyards are set in lovely, peaceful surroundings and welcome the offer of the public to buy a bench to place in their grounds as seating for all their visitors. Think of situating your memorial bench under a lovely horse chestnut tree or an apple blossom tree and the pleasure you and others will get as you reflect on the memories you have.
We as a company are also aware of the un-necessary acts of mindless vandalism that can occur in public places and offer both a soft anchor kit to attach your bench in grass, or a hard anchor kit to keep the bench safe on tarmac or paving stones.
Perhaps what most people want when remembering their relatives is some recognition of that person, and a plaque attached to your bench with a few chosen and well thought out words will be an everlasting memorial to that person. In many years to come those words will be an constant reminder to children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren who will visit the site in the future.
Maybe the memorial bench you buy will be a gift for someone who has recently lost their soul mate. They will be delighted that you have been so thoughtful during such a difficult time in their lives and will be so appreciative of your gesture. Many families will club together to purchase a bench to remember their father or mother and the words chosen for the plaque will be a source of lasting comfort to all family members.
Of course there are bound to be times when the weather is either wet, windy cold, or all three! , and the knowledge that when you get to the site of the grave you will be able to take the weight off your feet and relax for a few moments will make the visit all the more pleasurable. Taking your friends and family to see the bench that is a memorial to your late partner, and their delight at such a lovely gesture will help ease the sorrow you are undoubtedly feeling.
Please allow our company to help you remember the good times.
