NEW  Solar or Battery Candles for the Eternal Light

Thompson Monuments is now offering our new solar powered or battery powered candles for the Eternal Lights.   Price at $54.95 plus shipping for the solar candle and $39.95 plus shipping for the battery powered candle.

We are pleased to introduce our new solar cemetery candles! Our new solar powered candles feature a single solar panel, which charges the single AA battery contained inside the solar candle during the day.
     The solar panel also contains a light sensor which will then turn on the candle at dusk, causing it to light through the night.
    The single AA battery within the solar cemetery candle may need replacement annually, and is easily accessed by gently squeezing, and pulling the two halves of the solar candle apart.
     Designed specifically with eternal light housings in mind, our new solar cemetery candles will fit in most eternal light fixtures.
     Featuring a grooved bottom to facilitate moisture drainage from your eternal light housing, as well as coming apart at the middle of the unit, rather than the bottom for battery replacement, prevents corrosion of the internal workings, that other solar candles may be prone to.
      Our solar candles light using an LED rather than a traditional bulb. Which means the candle will consistently light, without the hassle of changing bulbs from time to time.
      Having overall dimensions of 7 3/4” in height, and 2 3/4” in width, we think you’ll find our solar cemetery candles to be a maintenance free and economical option to traditional wax candles, while at the same time being comparable in size and appearance. The price is only $54.95 plus shipping.  The NEW white LED that works in all colored cylinder eternal lights.

Our solar memorial light candles for the cemetery will last a long time at your loved one’s grave site.  It will provide a realistic gentle flicker, much like the traditional wax candles. Our solar powered candles are typically used in the cemetery when placed in an eternal light candle holder. They frequently have a red or blue cylinder lens made of acrylic (glass is usually not allowed in most cemetaries) with either a Latin or Orthodox cross on the lid.  These are found in many cemeteries including Catholic and Orthodox cemeteries.
Often called an eternal light or a vigil memorial candle light for the cemetary - it gives comfort for the surviving family members.  It says, “You are remembered”.

We offer several different styles of the eternal light holders for the cemetery. See “menu” on the above right hand side of this page.   Prices range from $69.95 to $519.95.   Most offer your choice of a red, blue, clear or white lens.  Our cemetery memorial light candle holders all can accommodate our solar powered or battery powered candles.
