Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Pinner
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Pinner 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 Pinner
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.

Facts About Pinner
The name Pinn is shared with the River Pinn, which runs through the middle of Pinner. The oldest part of the town lies around the fourteenth-century parish church of St. John the Baptist, at the junction of the present day Grange Gardens, The High Street, and Church Lane. Earliest surviving private dwellings, East End Farm Cottage, dates from the late fifteenth century.
It was largely from this time onwards that the area assumed much of its present-day suburban character. The area is now continuous with neighboring suburban districts including Rayners Lane and Eastcote. Pinner contains a large number of homes built in the 1930s Art Deco style, the grandest of which is the Grade II listed Elm Park Court at the junction of West End Lane and Elm Park Road.
Pinner is a town in Greater London, in the borough of Harrow, lying 12 miles northwest from Charing Cross. It is within the bounds of the historic county of Middlesex and located close to the border with the borough of Hillingdon.
