AEternal Lights2

Some call them eternal lights or vigil lights. Some are made of solar powered cells and others give their light of memories from the more traditional candles.  Call it what you like... it means “You’re Remembered”!

Candle Comparison

    Thompson Monuments offers a variety of candle options for our eternal light housings.  Often we field questions from customers about which candle is best.  All of our candles have different features which make them ideal for different situations.  To help you decide which candle option would work best for you, we offer a comparison of our candles below.


- Traditional Wax Candle: Our traditional wax candles are ideal for those who make frequent trips to their loved one’s gravesite.  Our wax candles are designed to burn from 5-7 days, and are ideal for those who desire to keep up a constant, day and night vigil of candlelight for their loved one.  We offer 8” Wax Candles for our more traditional eternal lights. 

--Hannah’s Battery Candle: Our Off/On Battery Candle has a flickering glow flame.  The Hannah’s Battery Candle is available in your choice of Red or White “flame”.  We recommend choosing red flame if you eternal light has a red colored cylinder.  If you have other colored cylinders then select the white flame

This candle features a light sensor, that will turn the light off during the day, and turn it on at night, thus saving on battery usage.  Designed to run on 3 AA batteries, the Off/On Battery Candle will run for more than 60 days, before replacement batteries are needed.  

-Hannah’s Solar Candle- The Solar Candle is perhaps the most maintenance free candle we offer.  This candle features a light sensor, that will turn the light off during the day, and turn it on at night.  Designed to run on a special AA battery, the Off/On Solar Candle will run for more than a year, before a replacement battery is needed.  We now offer this candle with TWO solar cells to maximize the lights working all night long.  

Customers should be aware that these candles need to be positioned so that they are receiving full sunlight.  Without daily sun exposure, the candle will not light in the evenings.  The darker the color of cylinder - the less time the solar candle will light at night.

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.   This new Solar cell is more than 3 times more sensitive than our old version of Hannah’s Solar  Light. 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!
