Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Barnsbury

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Barnsbury is as simple as forming a slab of concrete. But if you want the foundation to last for a long time, there are other things that you can do to make the foundation stronger so it will last longer.

A strong foundation will not begin to crack and crumble in the next few decades. Keep in mind that there are hundreds of variations in headstone shape, material make-up, and size. Customize the size and depth of the headstone foundation based on these factors.

A slab foundation is a large, thick slab of concrete that is typically 4”-6” thick in the center and poured directly on the ground all at one time. The edges of the slab are thicker (as wide as 24”) in order to allow for extra strength around the perimeter.

A concrete slab foundation is most commonly constructed on property that has been graded, as it should be. It is very important that the soil be graded because if it’s not, the foundation could sink or settle due to poor soil compaction.

    Facts About Barnsbury

    Barnsbury Facts

    Barnsbury is an area of north London in the London Borough of Islington, in the N1 postal district. A name is a syncopated form of Bernersbury, being so-called after the Berners family: powerful medieval manorial lords who gained ownership of a large part of Islington after the Norman Conquest.

    The area of Barnsbury was predominantly rural until the early nineteenth century. By the end of the 18th century, however, Barnsbury, like other parts of Islington, was being regarded as attractive part-rural suburbs by the comparatively wealthy people wanting to move out of the cramped City of London and industrial Clerkenwell.

    General Info

    The area is close to the City and had strong local trade in its position as the first staging post for travelers making the journey from London to the north and with considerable agricultural traffic and cattle driving to the nearby Smithfield cattle market in the City.

    Barnard Park, consisting of 10 acres including a large area of football pitches, was created in 1967 on an area of housing that had been bombed during World War Two and named after former Islington Mayor Cllr George Barnard. Pentonville Prison is located within Barnsbury.
