Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Nunhead 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 Nunhead

    Nunhead History

    Nunhead formed part of the large ancient parish of Camberwell in the Brixton hundred of Surrey. It has not formed an independent unit of civil administration. Instead, as the population grew, a separate St Antholin, Nunhead ecclesiastical parish was created in 1878, with a church built-in 1877.

    The church was later rebuilt in 1957 as St Antony’s Church. It was then Listed Grade II in 1972 but became surplus to requirements of the church and was declared redundant in 2001 and sold to its present owners. It then became the Lighthouse Cathedral.

    General Info

    Nunhead is a suburb in the London Borough of Southwark in London, England. It is an inner-city suburb located 4 miles southeast of Charing Cross. It is the location of the 52-acre Nunhead Cemetery. Nunhead has traditionally been a working-class area and, with the adjacent neighbourhoods, is currently going through a lengthy process of gentrification.

    The name is first recorded in 1680 and is believed to be taken from a local inn named The Nun’s Head. It is rumored that this name refers to the beheading of a nun during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. However, there is no evidence to support this claim.
