Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in South Hampstead
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in South Hampstead 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 South Hampstead
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.
Great restoration service
Headstone Foundations has completed the memorial restoration for my mother’s memorial. Can you please pass on my thanks for a great job, very efficient and professional, and my mother’s memorial looks much better than what it did before.
Facts About South Hampstead
South Hampstead Info
South Hampstead is part of the London Borough of Camden in inner northwest London. It is commonly defined as the area between: West End Lane in the west, the Chiltern Main Line, Broadhurst Gardens north and north-west followed by a non-road line demarcating the south slopes of Hampstead village, west of Belsize Park and north and west of the usually narrowly defined Swiss Cottage neighborhood.
It takes in some of Fitzjohns Avenue leading up to “the village”, that is of Hampstead, but the exact amount is an arbitrary measure. The 43 Group, an anti-fascist group of Jewish ex-servicemen after WW2 who broke up right-wing marches and fought fascists in the streets, was founded here. ETA, the Basque separatist group, and PLO, the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, used houses here as safe houses in the 1970s.
