Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Chalk Farm

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Chalk Farm 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 Chalk Farm

    Chalk Farm Facts

    Chalk Farm was originally known as the Manor of Rugmere, an estate that was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The manor was one of five which made up the large Ancient Parish of St Pancras. Henry VIII bought part of the manor, detaching it to form the north-eastern part of what would become Regent’s Park, the remainder subsequently become more commonly known as Chalk Farm.

    In 1786 the estate was sold to Charles FitzRoy, 1st Baron Southampton, it was described as commonly known as Chalk Farm. The term Rugmere appeared to have endured for some time as a field name. The origin of the name is disputed, it certainly doesn’t derive from the soil as the area is built on London Clay. It might derive from the colour of the farmhouse, sometimes referred to as the White House.

    General Info

    Chalk Farm is a small urban district of north London, lying immediately north of Camden Town, in the London Borough of Camden. The area is not formally defined, though the former Manor of Chalk Farm was a component part of the Ancient Parish and Borough of St Pancras.

    Chalk Farm includes part of the Camden Town with Primrose Hill ward, and perhaps also part of the Haverstock ward. As of 2020, Camdens wards are being reviewed and these wards will be abolished or have their boundaries redrawn. The core area lies between Chalk Farm Road in the east and St Pancras’ western boundary to the west; an area that extends to Ainger Road and takes in part of the Primrose Hill open space, though the hill itself is in Hampstead.
