Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Tufnell Park
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Tufnell Park 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 Tufnell Park
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 Tufnell Park
Tufnell Park History
There is no evidence of Roman activity in the area and a supposed Roman camp marked on Dent’s 1805 parish map has been shown by the Museum of London Archaeology excavations to probably be a misidentified medieval moated site. The road has for centuries been an east-west connector between the roads from the hearts of Islington and Camden which converge into a major northern route.
The road which Tufnell Park Road links have been greatly alleviated from sole principal status by diverting in the 20th century the A1 through Edgware where the M1 also runs instead of its old route through High Barnet, converging the route with the straighter A41 road from Marylebone.
Tufnell Park is an area in north London, England in the London Borough of Islington and London Borough of Camden. Its existence as a district or neighborhood in Inner London is consolidated by its tube station on the Northern Line which, non-exclusively, serves this area of former farmland last owned by a wealthy branch of the Tufnell family before its development.
Tufnell Park Football Club was a football club based immediately south of the overground railway, where Tufnell Park Playing Fields and a playground are today. One of the top amateur clubs in the country in the early 20th century, it merged in 1950 into Edmonton F.C., in turn merging in 1973 into Haringey Borough F.C. based at Coles Park, Tottenham.
