Benefits of Bronze Grave Markers
As a material, bronze is one of the most resilient and durable metals available for use as a grave marker. Bronze is an alloy which consists of copper and tin, with some trace amounts of zinc and lead. This combination creates a solid, long-lasting marker that is extremely easy to clean and maintain over the years. There are many examples of bronze grave markers that have lasted for decades, which is why their popularity continues to grow among a number of different people. Combined with a granite or concrete stone, bronze grave markers are the ideal way to memorialize an individual in an elegant and time-honoured manner.
At Behrends Group, we have numerous customization options for our bronze grave markers that can cater to the requirements of virtually any grave site. We offer a range of sizes and styles for our bronze grave markers, and we are familiar with the traditional standards for veteran’s grave sites. Our bronze grave markers can be enhanced with raised designs and each plaque is hand finished and given a protective coating to ensure its continued durability in the face of all the outdoor elements Canada has to offer.

Creating Bronze Grave Markers
The creation process of each bronze grave marker represents our staff’s dedication and strong attention to detail. Each marker is created using bronze alloy which is melted at heats of over 2000 degrees, and poured into a sand mold. Once the alloy has cooled, we begin the process known as chasing. This consists of removing any imperfections, no matter how minor, by grinding the surface until the desired texture and definition has been achieved. We then move to the finishing process where several coats of oxidized paint is applied that helps reveal the beautiful natural bronze colouring of the grave marker. This process gives the marker a notable contrast between the raised letters and the darker metal background of the marker.
We then apply a lacquer coating to seal the metal. Once this is complete, we verify that all of the specifications and unique features of the grave marker are accurately represented before we attach the metal to the desired stone base. The end result is a quality grave marker that is built to stand up to the test of time. We ensure that each grave marker that we create meets or exceeds the highest industry standards, so customers can rest assured that they are getting only the very best that we have to offer at Behrends Group.
