Woodland memorial benches compliment memorial forest sites and can be used by all visitors to enjoy the area. Within memorial forests where space is available, benches can be dedicated and installed by Life for a Life for a donation of £695 which includes a standard green plaque with a chosen 30 word sentiment.
Once installed the charity’s grounds team will inspect benches periodically to ensure they remain in a safe and serviceable condition. Over time the condition of memorial benches will deteriorate and they may become unsafe for use. At this time any benches that are not longer in a safe condition will be removed.
Please note that not all sites are suitable for memorial benches or may no longer have any availability.
In the case of Woodland Benches, they are installed using concrete and the main supporting posts are set approximately to a depth of 1m, on top of compacted hardcore or stone. Benches are guaranteed for 6 years and are tanalised (not painted) to ensure longevity.
