The Memorial Park Bench Headstone is a bench memorial sub-style that both houses the story of a loved one or a place, and a utilitarian value in a place to also sit and rest. The traditional “granite bench with back” style allows for a fully engraved back portion as well as plenty of space to sit.
In this article, we are going to cover:
As mentioned memorial park bench headstones are one of the bench styles that serve multiple purposes. The back of the bench memorial is upright and forward facing to allow for a full description to be engraved. That engraving can encompass the full story of the memorialized person, event, or place.
The overall bench is designed to allow for visitors to the cemetery to sit and rest along side those who also rest there. The seat of this specific design is curved to contour the person sitting. The legs are thin but sturdy as they also support the back of the bench headstone.
Selecting the right color takes time. All of the colors of granite are mined and sourced from all over the world. Thus, each stone is ever so slightly different.
The sample photos are a very good representation of the granite we source daily but in some cases, it is likely that you may see some variation in the color across the stone. (See the Rainbow or Bahama Blue Granite Examples) Whereas, some patterns are more uniform. (See the Blue Pearl or Gray Granite Examples).
Some of the most popular colors we source and engrave on daily are Gray, Sentinel Red, and Black. While these may be the most popular, we find that what matters most in selecting the bench memorial granite color is the story of the one, place or family memorialized.
