Ordering a Personalized Memorial Bench

While the process will largely depend on the cemetery from which you order your memorial bench, here is the general process of ordering a memorial bench for a cemetery:

1. Choose a Style

Start by picking out the style of bench you want. For instance, would you like a pedestal bench, a park bench, etc.

2. Choose a Color

Memorial benches are generally available in several different colors (although available colors will depend on the material of the bench). Often times you can pick multiple colors - for instance, you can choose a gray granite for the bench and black granite for the base.

3. Provide Family Name/Name of the Deceased

Next, you'll provide the information of the deceased as you would want it to appear on the bench. Usually this will be the name of the deceased along with the date of birth and date of death, but you can add additional information. For instance, many people choose to include a bible verse or meaningful quote.

4. Provide Any Further Customization Instructions

Additional customization options will depend on the type of cemetery selected. For instance, you may be able to add more engravings, flower vases, etc. It is best to consult with your cemetery to figure out customization options.
