Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Millwall

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Millwall 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 Millwall

    Millwall History

    Millwall is a smaller area of land than an average parish, as it was part of Poplar until the 19th century when it became heavily industrialized, containing the workplaces and homes of a few thousand dockside and shipbuilding workers. Among its factories were the shipbuilding ironworks of William Fairbairn, much of which survives as today’s Burrells Wharf. It was in this era also that Millwall F.C. was founded, in 1885, as Millwall Rovers.

    Originally known as Marshwall, the area acquired its new name with its breakaway from its former parish of Poplar. The replacement was due to the large number of windmills built on the river wall in the 19th century. Improvements led by the Lord Mayor William Cubitt in reinforcing the land solved the periodic flooding caused by major snowmelt and spring tides.

    General Info

    Millwall is a district on the western and southern side of the Isle of Dogs, in east London, England, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It lies to the immediate south of Canary Wharf and Limehouse, north of Greenwich and Deptford, east of Rotherhithe, west of Cubitt Town, and has a long shoreline along London’s Tideway, part of the River Thames.

    In September 2004, Tower Hamlets’ Respect party fought its second council election in the borough, standing local activist Paul McGarr. In this previously ‘solid’ Labour seat, Labour was pushed into third place, and the local Conservative party took its first-ever seat on Tower Hamlets council.
