Headstone Concrete Bases Foundation for Bethnal Green
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 Bethnal Green
Bethnal Green History
Bethnal Green was a smaller set of homesteads and cottages, a hamlet in the fertile fields of the ancient parish of Stepney, but as population and house-building began local intensification in the 18th century, the church agreed to found a fully-functional daughter church — as a parish with benefice and vestry in 1743.
In what would become northern Bethnal Green a tract of common land, which stretched to the east and west, belonged to the old Stepney Manor to the south. The heath was used as a pasture where people grazed their sheep in the 13th century, though 1275 records suggest at least one house stood there.
Bethnal Green is an area in the East End of London 1 mile northeast of Liverpool Street station. It has two Overground stations and one Underground station.
