Bronze Grave Markers

Bronze Grave MarkerBronze Grave Markers are one of the most common ways in which loved ones are remembered and memorialized. They are an elegant alternative to traditional granites. Bronze markers have been used for centuries and because bronze markers age well, they have been used in memorialization. Today, many cemeteries require bronze grave markers in order to meet their regulations and provide a uniform look to the cemetery. Bronze Grave Markers help in acknowledging how important your loved one was in your family and your personal life. Bronze Markers are made of special alloys that are composed of copper and tin with a small amount of lead and zinc. Bronze Markers go through a casting process where the material is made into the marker that you have designed. The bronze marker is then finished with a protective sealant to help slow the oxidizing process.

Granite Bench

Granite BenchWhether you want a garden bench, or a park bench or a cemetery bench, each one is made out of the finest grades of granite to ensure it will be around to enjoy for generations. While other companies will offer concrete or wooden benches for lower prices, nothing will outlast solid granite. And since most benches are for outdoor use, take into consideration how long you would like to be able to use your bench before you purchase concrete, wood or even metal.

Our granite benches come in a variety of granite colors quarried from all over the world and can be made in several different finishes. Polished granite is very smooth and shiny. Frosted granite has a lighter finish and is smooth, but not shiny. Rustic finished granite is very rough in texture and has a more natural appearance. While the benches we have listed are shown with specific finishes for each piece, they can be made in any combination of the three finishes mentioned. This may or may not add to the price, so please contact us if you would like a bench quoted in a different finish.
