Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Croydon

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Croydon 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.

    As the vast majority of place names in the area are of Anglo-Saxon origin. The theory accepted by most philologists is that the name Croydon derives originally from the Anglo-Saxon croh, meaning “crocus”, and denu, “valley”. Indicating that, like Saffron Walden in Essex, it was a centre for the cultivation of saffron. It has been argued that this cultivation is likely to have taken place in the Roman period when the saffron crocus would have been grown to supply the London market.

    Most probably for medicinal purposes, and particularly for the treatment of granulation of the eyelids. Alternative, although less probable, theories of the name’s origin have been proposed. According to John Corbet Anderson: “The earliest mention of Croydon is in the joint will of Beorhtric and Aelfswth, dated about the year 962.
