Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Hackney

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Hackney 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 Hackney

    Hackney History

    In the 13th century the name appears as Hackenaye or Hacquenye, but no certain derivation is advanced. Concise Oxford Dictionary of Place Names discusses the origin of the name. The first surviving records of the place name are as Hakney and Hakeneye. The ‘ey’ suffix almost certainly refers to an island; the dictionary favours the interpretation that Hackney means ‘Haka’s island,’ with Haka being a notable local person and the island lying close to the River Lea.

    In the Anglo-Saxon period, the River Lea separated the core territories of the East Saxons from the Middle Saxons they often controlled. This continuity of this natural boundary from pre-Roman period may be a result of the differing Saxon groups taking control of pre-defined territories. After both areas were brought under the control of Alfred the Great, the river became the boundary between the historic counties of Middlesex and Essex.

    General Info

    London Borough of Hackney is a London borough in Inner London. The historical and administrative heart of Hackney is Mare Street. Which lies 5 miles north-east of Charing Cross. The borough is named after Hackney, its principal district. Southern and eastern parts of the borough are popularly regarded as being part of east London, with the northwest belonging to north London.

    The London Plan issued by the Greater London Authority assigns whole boroughs to sub-regions for statutory monitoring, engagement, and resource allocation purposes. The most recent iteration of this plan assigns Hackney to the ‘East’ sub-region, while the 2008 and 2004 versions assigned the borough to ‘North’ and ‘East’ sub-regions respectively.
