Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Southend
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Southend 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 Southend
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 Southend
Originally the “south end” of the village of Prittlewell, Southend was home to a few poor fisherman huts and farms that lay at the southern extremity of Prittlewell Priory land. In the 1790s landowner Daniel Scratton sold off land either side of what was to become the High Street, and the Grand Hotel and Grove Terrace were completed by 1794, and stagecoaches from London made it accessible. Due to the bad transportation links between Southend and London, there was not rapid development during the Georgian Era like Brighton. It was the coming of the railways in the 19th Century and the visit of Princess Caroline of Brunswick that Southend’s status of a seaside resort grew.
Southend-on-Sea, commonly referred to simply as Southend, is a town and wider unitary authority area with borough status in southeastern Essex, England. It lies on the north side of the Thames Estuary, 40 miles east of central London. It is bordered to the north by Rochford and to the west by Castle Point. It is home to the longest leisure pier in the world, Southend Pier. London Southend Airport is located 1.5 NM north of the town centre.
