Are these really "cobbles" or are they actually setts?
Setts and Cobbles Definitions
Some setts *can* be laid onto sand, but then they would be jointed with a loose-fill aggregate, such as kiln dried sand or splitt. Cobbles are never (nowadays, at least) laid onto sand.
When a rigid/bound jointing medium is being used, whether it's cementitious or resin-based, the bed needs to be bound, so that usually means some form of mortar or concrete. Using a rigid or bound jointing system over a flexible/unbound bed is just asking for a failure.
