Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Haggerston
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Haggerston 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 Haggerston
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.
Great restoration service

Facts About Haggerston
Haggerston is first recorded in the Domesday Book as Hergotestane. Possibly of Viking origin, and an outlying hamlet of Shoreditch. On Rocque’s 1745 map of Hackney, the village is shown as Agostone but by the 19th century, it had become Haggerstone. And part of the growing urban sprawl, with factories and streets of workers’ cottages lining the canal.
The proximity to Hoxton and Shoreditch has made the area popular with students and workers in the creative industries, as these nearby areas have grown more expensive. In recent years, escalating property prices have driven commercial art galleries further into east London, which has exacerbated this effect. For the same reason, Haggerston has been attracting tech startups over Silicon Roundabout in Old Street, with some people calling the area “Hackerston”.
Haggerston is a locale in East London, England, centered approximately on Great Cambridge Street. It is within the London Borough of Hackney and is considered to be a part of London’s East End. It is about 3.1 miles northeast of Charing Cross. The adjacent neighborhoods are Dalston, Hoxton, and Bethnal Green. In 1965, the Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch became part of the new London Borough of Hackney.
There is an electoral ward called Haggerston within the borough. In the 1990s a number of the area’s more rundown housing estates were refurbished and some disused public buildings were privately converted into gated communities. In 2010, Haggerston Railway station re-opened, a little to the north of the original station.
