Memorial benches can serve as Houston Jewish monuments at your loved one’s grave.

Granite graveside benches are another way you can honor your loved one. These benches generally feature many of the same design elements as a traditional headstone. For example, you can choose different granite colors, sizes, and shapes. Our team can also engrave information and design elements on the memorial bench, such as names, dates, quotes, and symbols. Because of this, many people choose to use a bench instead of a headstone. However, we have also helped people create matching headstones and benches or even designed monuments that include a headstone and a bench in one. 

Why Choose Memorial Benches Over Traditional Houston Jewish Headstones?

There are many advantages of using memorial benches as monuments for your loved one’s final resting place. For instance, benches give those who love them a place to sit and reflect on happy memories while visiting the grave. 

Also, memorial benches often have much more surface area than many Houston Jewish headstones, which allows for more space to add epitaphs, designs, and other memorialization. Our team can engrave the top, sides, front, and back of the bench, depending on the size and shape. Therefore, there is more room if you prefer longer epitaphs or larger artwork on your loved one’s monument. 

Another reason many people prefer memorial benches is that they stand out compared to more traditional options. This makes your loved one’s grave easier to find and looks unique in many cemeteries. 

If you’re interested in choosing a bench Houston Jewish monument for your loved one, the first step is to check with the cemetery about any guidelines they have, as some may have size, color, and monument type restrictions. Then, reach out to our team to start designing your loved one’s bench monument.
