About your theme:
A cemetery is in its essence a place of human relationship, that brings people together through moments of grief, hope and remembrance.

Our designs for a series of benches for the Rectory Lane cemetery reflects the idea of bringing people together, of gathering. They are designed to accommodate families or groups of friends and encourage interaction and conversation.
