Classic I memorial bench
The ‘Classic One’ is the archetypal hardwood memorial bench.
For our sturdy design we like to use more generous timber sections than are normally seen on a bench of this type.
We use 1¼” x 3¾” (32 x 95mm) timbers for those chunky seat slats and the arms and legs are made from 3″ (80mm) stock. These details ensure a lifetime of active service.
We’ve been manufacturing the Classic I memorial bench for over 30 years and there are now thousands of examples distributed across the UK.
Our 4 leg Classic I memorial bench is available in 4, 5, 6 and 7ft sizes. It’s also available as a chair.
Our Classic I long with 6 legs (above) is available in 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10ft sizes.
(Above) We were commissioned to engrave a musical score on the top rail of our Classic I memorial bench complete with lyrics of the Hymn “The Lord bless you and keep you”.
Even these fine lines were carved quite deeply into the wood with a sharp 30 degree cutter and then a very dark wood dye was used to make the design stand out. This produced a truly permanent wood engraving fit for a memorial bench.
“Thank you so very much for making the memorial bench for Emma so special.It is now in place in the churchyard and has been much admired.Tears and smiles.
“The bench is very solid, heavy and well made, and I’m sure will last for a long, long time.Thank you all very much.” – AH – Oct 2014 (Devon)
