Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Brentford
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Brentford 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 Brentford
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 Brentford
The name is recorded as Breguntford in 705 in an Anglo-Saxon charter and means ‘ford over and the ‘-ford’ suffix is Old English. The ford was most likely located where the main road crossed the river. New Brentford is recorded as Newe Braynford in 1521 and was previously known as Westbraynford.
Brentford is the first point on the tidal portion of the River Thames which was easily fordable by foot. Partly for this reason, it has been suggested that Julius Cæsar crossed the Thames here during his invasion of Britain in 54 BC, and the Brentford Monument outside the County Court asserts that a battle took place here at this time between Cæsar’s forces and Cassivellaunus.
Brentford is a suburban town in West London, England, and part of the London Borough of Hounslow. It lies at the confluence of the River Brent and the Thames, 8 miles west of Charing Cross. Historically part of Middlesex, it has formed part of Greater London since 1965. Its economy has diverse company headquarters buildings which mark the start of the M4 corridor.
In transport it also has two railway stations and Boston Manor Underground station on its north-west border with Hanwell. Brentford has a convenient shopping and dining venue grid of streets at its center. Brentford at the start of the 21st century attracted regeneration of its little-used warehouse premises and docks including the re-modeling of the waterfront to provide more economically active shops.
