Headstone Concrete Bases Foundation for Bayswater
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 Bayswater
In 1720, the lands of the Dean and Chapter are described to be the occupation of Alexander Bond, of Bear’s Watering, in the same parish of Paddington. It may therefore fairly be concluded that this portion of ground. Always remarkable for its springs of excellent water, once supplied water to Baynard, his household, or his cattle; that the memory of his name was preserved in the neighborhood for six centuries.
The land now called Bayswater belonged to the Abbey of Westminster when the Domesday Book was compiled; the most considerable tenant under the abbot was Bainiardus, probably the same Norman associate of the Conqueror who gave his name to Baynard’s Castle. The descent of the land held by him cannot be clearly traced: but his name long remained attached to part of it.
Bayswater is an area within the City of Westminster in West London. It is a built-up district with a population density of 17,500 per square kilometer. It is located 2.5 miles west-northwest of Charing Cross, between Kensington Gardens to the south, Paddington to the north-east, and Notting Hill to the west.
The streets and garden squares are lined with Victorian stucco terraces, mostly now subdivided into flats and boarding houses. Properties range from apartments to small studio flats. There are also purpose-built apartment blocks dating from the inter-war period as well as more recent developments. A large council estate, the 650-flat Hallfield Estate, designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and now largely sold off.
