In the hustle and bustle of today’s hectic world, it can be all too hard to find the time or space for a moment of quiet reflection. Finding the time for friends and families is hard enough, let alone remembering those precious loved ones who are no longer with us.
So when the occasion arises and we are gifted with the opportunity to relax and breathe freely, the opportunity to free our thoughts and dedicate our minds to what really matters should be savoured.
Whatever your surroundings, be it sweeping lawns and landscaped vistas, a woodland walk, a nature reserve or even a park, choosing the right spot to sit is key to enjoying a comfortable and calm meditation. Only when you are seated in comfort can you truly relax and clear your thoughts. That’s when the exceptional craftsmanship of a memorial bench from Shropshire-based Bench Memorials can really make the difference.
Our memorial benches are so much more than just a place to sit. They are lovingly made in our Shropshire workshop with carefully sourced materials and traditional construction. Our sensitive designs, along with our commitment to sustainability, reflect the pride we put into making sure every bench is the perfect, enduring memorial to those who matter the most.
We understand that, just like people, every environment is unique and individual. That’s why we offer a range of benches to suit every personality and setting.
A timeless classic, the simple clean lines and traditional style of the Lawley Memorial Bench (below left) make it a popular choice of memorial bench for parks or gardens.
An alternative which is designed with longer periods of contemplation in mind is the Boscobel Memorial Bench (above, right), which combines an ergonomic design with generous arms capable of supporting a book or glass.
If, however, you had something more rugged and adventurous in mind, you might wish to get a little closer to nature with the sturdy and robust Moreton Outdoor Bench. Made to withstand the rigours of any environment, it is ideally suited to woodlands or nature reserves and guaranteed to last.
In addition to our existing range of memorial benches, we also offer you the opportunity to tailor your memory with a bespoke bench made here in our Shropshire workshops. Our skilled and sensitive craftsmen will work closely with you to turn your vision into reality.
The immense power of words should never be overlooked, especially when celebrating or commemorating the lives of those whose memory you hold dearest. Thanks to our highly experienced wood carver, we can add beautiful carved lettering to any bench. Alternatively, you may prefer to choose a traditional brass or stainless steel plaque to add that personal touch.
We source our materials carefully and responsibly, through local suppliers wherever possible, in an attempt to minimise our carbon footprint. In addition, our 100% natural products do not need any chemical treatments or preservatives, making them a truly green memorial.
At Bench Memorials, we understand how precious memories are. That’s why we put so much pride into creating unique and enduring memorials to help the memory last. If you would like to discuss any of our services please contact our team of experts here.
