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

Thank you for the great work
Recently just had the foundation base of my father’s memorial headstone laid down, and was very pleased with Headstone Foundations. They were very professional, quick and laid down a very sturdy foundation for the headstone. Would definitely recommend!
Tons of experience and knowledge
The experience and knowledge of Headstone Foundations was a major reason for our picking them as a company to lay the base for our headstone. That same experience and knowledge was reflected all the way through the contract and we were very happy with both the result and the working practices.

Facts About Feltham
A large area of ten cultivated ploughlands is recorded. Following Mortain’s son’s forfeit of lands, the land was granted to the Redvers/de Ripariis/Rivers family. The heir in that family, Hubert de Burgh swapped Feltham and Kempton with Henry III for his manors of Aylsham in Norfolk and Westhall in Suffolk.
While under total royal control following Henry VIII’s full annexation of the manor into the Honour of Hampton Court. A lease of all of its manor court rights and “franchises, privileges, emoluments, and hereditaments” was granted under his daughter Elizabeth I to the Killigrew family of Kempton Park, for 80 years.
Feltham is a large town in western Greater London, England. Approximately 13 miles from Charing Cross. Historically part of Middlesex, it became part of the London Borough of Hounslow in 1965. The parliamentary constituency of Feltham and Heston has been held by Labour Party MPs since 1992. In 2011, the population of the combined census area of Feltham, Bedfont, and Hanworth was 63,368, of which around 49% had Afro-Caribbean, South Asian, or Eastern European family backgrounds.
The economy of the town was largely agrarian until the early twentieth century when it was transformed by the expansion of the London urban area. Most of the original High Street was demolished in the 1960s and 1970s. Further redevelopment in the early 2000s created the current shopping center, which opened in 2006.
