Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Southwold

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Southwold 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 Southwold

    Southwold History

    Southwold was mentioned in Domesday Book (1086) as a fishing port, and after the “capricious River Blyth withdrew from Dunwich in 1328, bringing trade to Southwold in the 15th century”, it received its town charter from Henry VII in 1489. Over the following centuries, however, a shingle bar built up across the harbour mouth, preventing the town from becoming a major Early Modern port: “The shingle at Southwold Harbour, the mouth of the Blyth, is ever-shifting,” William Whittaker observed in 1887.

    Richard Ibrook, born in Southwold and a former bailiff of the town, emigrated to Hingham, Massachusetts, along with Rev. Peter Hobart, son of Edmund Hobart of Hingham, Norfolk. Rev. Hobart had been an assistant vicar of St Edmund’s Church, Southwold, after graduating from Magdalene College, Cambridge.
