Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Battersea
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Battersea 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.
Headstone Concrete Bases Foundation for Battersea
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.Contact Us

Thank you for the great work
Recently just had the foundation base of my father’s memorial headstone laid down, and was very pleased with Headstone Foundations. They were very professional, quick and laid down a very sturdy foundation for the headstone. Would definitely recommend!
Tons of experience and knowledge
The experience and knowledge of Headstone Foundations was a major reason for our picking them as a company to lay the base for our headstone. That same experience and knowledge was reflected all the way through the contract and we were very happy with both the result and the working practices.

Facts About Battersea
Industry in the area was concentrated to the northwest just outside the Battersea-Wandsworth boundary, at the confluence of the River Thames and the River Wandle. Which gave rise to the village of Wandsworth. This was settled from the 16th century by Protestant craftsmen Huguenots. Fleeing religious persecution in Europe, who planted lavender and gardens and established a range of industries such as mills, breweries and dyeing, bleaching and calico printing.
Along the Thames, a number of large and, in their field, pre-eminent firms grew. Notably, the Morgan Crucible Company, which survives to this day and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. Price’s Candles, which also made cycle lamp oil; and Orlando Jones’ Starch Factory.
Battersea is a district of South West London, England, within the London Borough of Wandsworth. It is located on the south bank of the River Thames, 2.9 miles southwest of Charing Cross. The tradition of local government in England was based in part of Manor, and later on the Parish. Battersea’s governance can be traced back to 693 when the manor was held by the nunnery of St. Mary at Barking Abbey.
After the Norman Conquest of 1066, control of the manor passed to Westminster Abbey, ending at the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1540. Local control rested with an officer appointed by the abbey, variously termed a beadle, reeve or sergeant, whose responsibility it supervised the farm servants of the manor, and to enforce and direct customary work performed by manorial tenants.
