If you are considering upgrading the monuments for your family's burial site, you may be wondering which memorials are available. In some cases, you may not want to stick to the traditional headstone or monument. If you are looking for something unique, then a memorial bench may be ideal. Here are a few of the reasons why this monument type may be an option for you.
One of the reasons that many people choose memorial benches and specifically custom memorial benches is that they offer a monument option for an entire family burial plot. On these benches, you can have the family name, the names of those buried at the family site, and special etchings. This allows you to have one monument for the family rather than multiple monuments that can increase in price over the years. This also allows you to have the same monument without worry that other monuments may not match the family site.
The idea of a custom memorial bench is one that has many benefits, including practical benefits. For example, many of the people who visit burial plots and sites for long periods of time are elderly. Having a bench allows them to visit with their loved one while still being able to sit comfortably and stay for longer. This sitting option offers a more practical and serviceable solution over traditional monuments and headstones that serve only to showcase the name of the family member or loved one who has passed on.
In addition to the practical and budgeting benefits of having a single bench as a memorial, there are also artistic benefits. In many cemeteries, you will see multiple versions of the same headstone or memorial option. However, with a memorial bench, you can add your own touch, etched designs, images, and special attributes. These attributes may include columns, angels, and nature designs. The bench allows you to express the artistic imagery that your loved one can be remembered for, while still providing an inviting option for people who visit the site.
These are just a few of the reasons that you may want to consider a custom memorial bench for your family burial site. If a custom bench appeals to you, contact your local monument supplier or monument artisan. They will be able to help you with the different memorial options available as well as monuments that fit your needs.
