Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Shoreditch
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Shoreditch 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 Shoreditch
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 Shoreditch
Shoreditch High Street and Kingsland Road are a small sector of the Roman Ermine Street and modern A10. Known also as the Old North Road, it was a major coaching route to the north, exiting the City at Bishopsgate. The east-west course of Old Street–Hackney Road was also probably originally a Roman Road, connecting Silchester with Colchester, bypassing the City of London to the south.
In 1574 the City authorities banned the building of playhouses in the City of London area, consequently, theatres were built in the suburbs, beyond its jurisdiction. This priory was located between Shoreditch High Street and Curtain Road to east and west, and Batemans Row and Holywell Lane to north and south. Nothing remains of it today.
Shoreditch is a district in the East End of London, forming the southern part of the London Borough of Hackney, with neighboring parts of Tower Hamlets also perceived as a part of the area. In the 16th century, Shoreditch was an important center of the Elizabethan Theatre, and it has been an important entertainment center since that time; today hosting many pubs, bars and nightclubs.
The most commercial areas lie closest to the city of London and along the A10 Road, with the rest mostly residential. Other scholars, however, have challenged this interpretation on the grounds that the City of London lies between Shoreditch and the Thames.
