Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Penge

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Penge 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 Penge

    Penge History

    Penge was once a small town, which was recorded under the name Penceat in an Anglo-Saxon deed dating from 957. Most historians believe the name of the town is derived from the Celtic word Penceat, which means ‘edge of wood’ and refers to the fact that the surrounding area was once covered in a dense forest.

    The original Celtic words of which the name was composed referred to ‘pen’ (‘head’), as in the Welsh ‘pen’, and ‘ceat’ (‘wood’), similar to the Welsh ‘coed’, as in the name of the town of Pencoed in Wales. The largest amosite mine in the world, in South Africa, was named Penge apparently because one of the British directors thought the two areas were similar in appearance.

    General Info

    Penge is an area of South East London, England, within the London Borough of Bromley. It is located 3.5 miles west of Bromley, 3.7 miles northeast of Croydon, and 7.1 miles southeast of Charing Cross, the traditional center of London. The urban district consisted of three wards of Anerley, Penge, and Upper Norwood.

    It incorporated the whole of Crystal Palace Park except part of the eastern side running along Crystal Palace Park Road which was then administered by the Municipal Borough of Beckenham. From 1885, the Hamlet of Penge was part of the Dulwich parliamentary constituency, which was then in Surrey, and remained in that seat until 1918, when it was transferred to the new Bromley constituency.
