Where can I find the requirements for concrete foundations for grave headstones in Ontario? Particularly I am interested in knowing where to find the minimum required depth. I am wondering if it is 1.2 m (4') as it is for building exterior foundations in this geographic area (Toronto). The question arises in relation to restoration of a number of 100 year old headstones in a cemetery in Toronto, that have fallen over or are leaning. I am told that these headstones were just stuck into the ground, with no concrete foundation. I have not found this information in the Ontario Cemetery act. I am a structural engineer and have been asked about this.
