A bench has long been a preferred way to mark a grave. It allows everyone visiting their loved ones to have a special place where they can sit and be with the deceased. At Shafer Memorials, we can incorporate the cremains inside the bench supports, where they are securely sealed.

Designs That Hold Cremains

This design shows a cremation liner inserted through the granite. The liner is sealed with the cremains inside it. The bronze cap is then secured into the granite with one-way screws that cannot be removed.

Grave Options

You may own one grave and wish for your cremains to eventually be buried there along with those of your spouse. To serve this need, we can provide you with monument choices that are thin, tall designs. They allow us to incorporate both names / dates onto one grave width. Shapes, sizes, and colors for these options are almost limitless!

Granite Cremation Niche Units

These beautiful units have granite panels that can be moved to place cremation urns and keepsakes inside before the unit is sealed. Some are offered with an open area, where a statue, a vase, or a candle can be placed. We will engrave the name / date information on the front, along with the desired artwork or verses.
