Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Carshalton

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Carshalton 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 Carshalton

    Carshalton History

    To the south of the area now known as Carshalton, remains of artefacts dating from the Neolithic to the Iron Age have been found, suggesting that this was an early place of habitation. Prior to the Norman Conquest, it is recorded that there were five manors in this location owned by five freemen. The village lay within the Anglo-Saxon administrative division of Wallington hundred.

    In the Middle Ages the land in the village was generally farmed in the form of a number of open fields, divided into strips. The number of strips which each landowner possessed was based roughly on his wealth. There was also an area of open downland in the south of the parish for grazing sheep. Carshalton was known for its springs; these may have given the place its name Cars – Aul – ton. Aul means well or spring. A ton is a farm which was in some way enclosed.
