Granite Benches


Some cemeteries will allow you to install a granite bench at the foot of the grave to compliment your monument, and they can even be used at the grave headstone or incorporated into a memorial design.

Gaydos Monument Company can provide granite benches in any of our granite colors. Cemetery benches typically have no back and are a beautiful way to incorporate a comfortable spot to sit and reflect. Granite benches can also be designed and engraved just as you would a traditional memorial, and they come in several traditional sizes and simple shapes, or they can be customized to have rounded features and/or intricate edges. 

Gaydos Monument Company also provides granite benches for civic projects and landscaping applications. These granite benches typically have a back and can be engraved to commemorate veterans, groups, sponsors, or any other memorial monument or grave headstone you would like.
