The “Abiding-Lite” is a space age plastic version of our aluminum eternal light housings. Constructed of durable Milion plastic, and featuring Lexan cylinders for extra long life.
  We offer cylinders in a broad spectrum of colors, with a lightly etched cross displayed on each. Designed for ground mounting, the Abiding Light has an 11 1/2” plastic stake, which is molded with the base as a single piece, these housings are offered in gold, black and gray. Priced at $69.95, plus shipping.  Special note about the GOLD units - the gold color is a difficult color to replicate and may sometimes turn out a little “greenish” tint.

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 $64.95 plus shipping for the solar candle and $39.95 plus shipping for the battery powered candle.

Have you spent a lot of money on wax candles that burn out way too soon?   At almost $5 each -  it adds up fast! Not to mention the added hassle of making sure you get to the cemetery each week to replace them!

Thompson Monuments is now offering our new DOUBLE CELL solar powered candles for the Eternal Lights.   Priced at $64.95 plus shipping .

 dual solar cell candle  Our new solar powered candles feature TWO solar panels, that fully charge the included single AA Ni-MH battery contained inside the solar candle during the day to run all night long.  The solar panels also contain a light sensor which will then turn on the candle at dusk, causing it to light through the night. TWO Cells also allow for charging during morning and afternoon because they face two different directions.
    The single AA battery within the solar cemetery candle may need replacement annually, and is easily accessed by gently squeezing, and pulling the two larger halves of the solar candle apart.
     Designed specifically with eternal light housings in mind, our new solar cemetery candles will fit 90% of eternal light fixtures on the market.
     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, reduces corrosion of the internal workings, that other solar candles may be prone to. This updated version also has a silicon gasket between the top and bottom portions to aid in waterproofing.
      Our new double cell candle has an even thicker ABS plastic wall for added durability and strength.
      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” in height, and 2.5” in width, we think you’ll find our solar cemetary 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 $64.95 plus shipping. The white LED works in all colored cylinder eternal light housings.

All candle units come with a ONE YEAR REPLACEMENT WARRANTY.

One frequently asked question is... will the sun charge the solar candle even through the colored cylinders? Yes, with our NEW white LED candle it will charge the battery during the daytime even though you use a dark cylinder.   As with all solar products - if the sun does not shine on it then it will not charge the battery during the day time but this NEW unit will store enough to last 2-3 days of cloudy weather AND the light will shine all night long!


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.
