Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Ealing 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 Ealing

    Ealing History

    Archaeological evidence shows that parts of Ealing have been occupied for more than 7,000 years Iron Age pots have been discovered in the vicinity on Horsenden Hill. A settlement is recorded here in the 12th century amid a great forest that carpeted the area to the west of London. The earliest surviving English census is that for Ealing in 1599.

    Settlements were scattered throughout the parish. Many of them were along what is now called St. Mary’s Road, near to the church in the center of the parish. There were also houses at Little Ealing, Ealing Dean, Haven Green, Drayton Green, and Castlebar Hill. The Church of St. Mary’s, the parish church, dates back to the early 12th century. The parish of Ealing was divided into manors, such as those of Gunnersbury and Pitshanger.

    General Info

    Ealing is a district in West London, England, located 7.5 miles west of Charing Cross. Located within the London Borough of Ealing, it is one of the borough’s seven major towns. Ealing, covering the W5 and W13 postal code areas is the administrative center of the borough, is identified as a major metropolitan center in the London Plan.

    Until the urban expansion of London in the late 19th century and early 20th centuries Ealing was a rural village within Ealing parish. Improvement in communications with London, culminating with the opening of the railway station in 1838, shifted the local economy to market garden supply and eventually to suburban development. By 1902 Ealing had become known as the “Queen of the Suburbs” due to its greenery, and because it was halfway between city and country.
