Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Eye
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Eye 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 Eye
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

Facts About Eye
There have been Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age finds in and around Eye but the earliest evidence of settlement in the town dates from the Roman period and includes buildings and coins dated circa 365. A large Anglo-Saxon cemetery including many urned cremations and some furnished inhumations, in use during the 6th century, was excavated near the Waterloo Plantation, Eye, in 1818. In 1781 some labourers unearthed a lead box by the river at Clint Farm in Eye, 3 miles south of Scole and 2 miles south-west of Hoxne.
Before the Norman Conquest, Eye was one of the numerous holdings of Edric of Laxfield, a wealthy and influential Saxon and the third largest landholder in Suffolk. After the Norman Conquest, the importance of the town was firmly established in the region when the Honour of Eye was granted to William Malet, a Norman lord, and continued to be held by royal or noble families until 1823.
Eye is a small market town in the north of the English county of Suffolk, about 4 miles south of Diss, 17 1⁄2 miles north of Ipswich and 23 miles south-west of Norwich. It lies close to the River Waveney, which forms the border with Norfolk, and it is on the River Dove. Eye is twinned with the town of Pouzauges in the Vendée department of France.
