A Wooden Memorial Bench

Why have a Memorial Wooden Bench?

Often families like to come to the crematorium grounds and sit peacefully remembering their loved ones.

Memorial Wooden Benches are available with a plaques featuring an inscription.

Memorial Benches are available at the following locations; Mitcham Road Cemetery, Queen’s Road Cemetery or Greenlawn Memorial Park (Warlingham), or in our Gardens of Remembrance.

The timber mostly used is Iroko, which is comparable with teak. It is extremely hard and resistant to all weather conditions.

Our supplier aims not to contribute to rainforest destruction and the 6’ timber benches are constructed from non-tropical and sustainable wood which guarantees the protection of the local ecology.

Croydon Bereavement Services will place the bench at an agreed location. A total of two inscribed bronze plaques, each measuring 30cms x 6.25cms can be purchased to dedicate the bench. On request we can teak oil or varnish the bench for you. If left to weather naturally, it will maintain an attractive silver-grey colour, without detriment to the timber.

The benches are placed on a paved base and as a security precaution we use a galvanised steel-fixing bracket.

Dedications are for an initial period of fifteen years. Staff are available at the Crematorium office to advise you on availability and current prices.
