Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Furzedown

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Furzedown 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 Furzedown

    Furzedown History

    The western part was in the parish of Tooting and part of the Seely estate, comprising 80 acres and 100 acres. Part of the estate adjacent to Tooting Junction Railway Station became available in 1892 and was developed as the Furzedown golf course, designed by Tom Dunn. The Seely estate was sold at the beginning of the twentieth century and the golf club moved to South Lodge, Mitcham Common in 1906.

    In November 2017, Arthur Tingle, who was then nine years old, began a project at Penwortham School. Using Furzedown’s online community network, he contacted the businesses on Moyser Road and local residents to ask about what the shops had been in the past, and people’s memories of shopping in them. During 2019, local photographer Alan Weller and Martin Beaver contacted the people that Arthur had contacted – and more.
