Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Thornton Heath

Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Thornton Heath 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 Thornton Heath

    Thornton Heath History

    Until the arrival of the railway in 1862, Thornton Heath was focused on an area 1.5 miles south-west of the Whitehorse manor house, at the locality on the main London-Sussex road known as Thornton Heath Pond. Between the manor house and pond, there was an isolated farmhouse. Eventually, it would become the site for the railway station and the main expansion hub.

    Within the 50-year period 1861–1911, Thornton Heath saw a complete transformation from an isolated rural outpost to an integrated metropolitan suburb. In its infancy, a new railway station sited in the eastern farmlands enabled that immediate area to evolve around a central point. In the late 19th century, the western part of Thornton Heath, which lay directly on the main London-Sussex road, demonstrated a classic form of suburban ribbon development.
