Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Marylebone
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Marylebone 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 Marylebone
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 Marylebone
Marylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary, represented by St Marylebone Parish Church. The original church was built on the bank of a small stream or “bourne”, called the Tybourne or Tyburn. This stream rose further north in what became Swiss Cottage. Eventually running along what became Marylebone Lane, which preserves its curve within the grid pattern.
Early in the 13th century it was held by Robert de Vere, 3rd Earl of Oxford. At the end of the 15th century, Thomas Hobson bought up the greater part of the manor. In 1544 his son Thomas exchanged it with Henry VIII, who enclosed the northern part of the manor as a deer park.
Marylebone is an area in the West End of London, in the City of Westminster. Oxford Street, Europe’s busiest shopping street, forms its southern boundary. Originally an ancient parish and latterly a Metropolitan Borough, it merged with the Metropolitan Boroughs of Westminster and Paddington to form the new City of Westminster in 1965.
Also home to the historical Nottingham Place. It is characterized by its ornate red buildings, leading up to Marylebone Road. Most recently, in 2017–18, Number 28 was home to notable Indian artists, musicians, diplomats, and all-around Renaissance men. Their tenure was prematurely cut short. Wimpole Street runs from Henrietta Place north to Devonshire Street. Becoming Upper Wimpole en route – the latter where Arthur Conan Doyle opened his ophthalmic practice at number 2 in 1891.
