Bronze Memorials

Bronze Memorials are some of the most traditional ways to memorialize your loved one’s story. Typically used in the catholic tradition to adorn the walls of their mausoleums; bronze markers are made of long lasting cast bronze material that lasts for generations. The raised polished letters and polished detailed frames or flower scenes will honor you loved one in this life and the next.

Our Bronze comes from right here in the United states so you know it will stand the test of time. We offer bronze markers for single individuals as well as companions and vases to match your loved one’s design.  The bronze is typically mounted on a four inch granite base.  With, you having the option to include a flower vase, if desired. (As Shown). A Bronze Memorial is also the gifted memorial for our veterans lost in service and commonly given by the local VA. Please contact your local VA for more information

When designing a Bronze Memorial for a single individual their story will last for generations to come. The location of the final memorial will really matter when it comes to selecting the size and shape of the actual bronze itself. When marking a mausoleum or crypt site a smaller more ornamental bronze marker is used. As opposed to grave site, in the flat marker section of the cemetery, where the size could be 24″ x 12″ or even larger. The size of the Bronze tends to only really depend on the space available. For a single individual, their name, date of birth, and date of passing are all typically presented in raised polished letters. The common bronze polish will sit atop the blackened or charred bronze field for contrast. Unless you are adding their memorial to a shared burial vault, you will also get to choose the granite it is mounted to, giving you a dozen more options to help customize their memorial and help make it uniquely theirs.

A Bronze Memorial for Two People is also commonly known as a Companion Bronze Marker. These are larger bronze markers with a large surname across the top of the bronze and the first names below with their corresponding dates available. The border or frame will tell one aspect of their story but almost every companion bronze we craft has a unifying design centered either at the very top of the marker or in-between the names. “Together Forever” was the unifying phrase that the Waldman family choose to show their abundant love and companionship throughout the ages. That unifying phrase encompasses an inset bronze flower vase that is used to hold the families chosen memorial flowers throughout the year.

As mentioned in both the Bronze Memorials for One Person and Bronze Memorials for Two People, the granite color you choose to mount on will act as an accent color for the bronze marker itself. And, while we cannot change the color of the bronze metal, we can add a touch of color from the granite slab border around. Any of our granite colors can be used to border your loved ones bronze memorial. For many veteran bronze markers, it does break the uniformity of the bronze on white to add in the bronze on a powerful read or soothing blue or green stone. Each of our granite markers are natural and all are mined from the earth so each will have its own unique characteristics. Some of the colors like our white and grey will be a more uniform tight grain while the Bahama Blue or Emerald Green will have a more flowing grain or unique iridescent flakes, respectively. No matter the color you choose for your loved ones Bronze Memorial it will frame it nicely and hold your loved ones memory in honor.

So once you have chosen to build a Bronze Memorial, you can truly make their flat marker design with an inlaid vase or porcelain photo insert. The vase can either bronze or granite with both accepting and holding your loved ones seasonal flowers placed by the cemetery or by your family. For those looking to remember them in full color, our porcelain inserts can host a portrait of their likeness that helps you and future generations remember exactly who they were.
