Memorial Park Bench Headstones

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 rest. The traditional granite bench with back style allows for a fully engraved back portion as well as plenty of space to sit.

Memorial Park Bench
Headstone Design

  • 52" bench memorial with color bronze city seal

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 alongside 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.  

Available Granite Colors Best Suited For Memorial Park Bench Headstones

  • Emerald Pearl Granite
  • Bahama Blue Granite Color
  • Black Granite Color
  • Blue Pearl Granite Color
  • Carnelian Granite Color
  • Sira Gray Granite
  • Morning Rose Granite Color
  • Rainbow Granite Color
  • Regal Black Granite Color
  • Sedona Pink Granite Color
  • Sentinel Red Granite Color
  • White Marble Color

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, you may see some variation in the color across the stone like the Rainbow or Bahama Blue Granite. Whereas, some patterns are more uniform like the Blue Pearl or Gray Granite

Some of the most popular colors we source and engrave  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 member memorialized.

All colors considered, it’s best to reach out and speak with one of our expert memorial designers for more details of weekly stock and how long custom pieces will take to get here.
