Much like columbaria, a granite cremation bench may be placed in smaller, intimate spaces to embrace the beauty of the outdoors. Cremation benches allow for the placement of one to four sets of cremated remains and may be customized with sandblast lettering and emblems. Bronze or granite vases may be added to allow families to bring floral tributes for their loved ones. Groupings of benches or pedestals may be configured to create a cremation garden area within a cemetery or other outdoor setting.
A cremation pedestal serves the same purpose as a cremation bench but is aligned upright with core holes inside to allow for the placement of several cremation remains. Bases and vases may also be added in addition to custom granite figures mounted to the top of the pedestal. Top mount figures may be of a religious nature, sports, hobbies as well as pieces that serve as a bird bath for nature lovers.
