Hi Satheesh, 
Thank you contacting Syncfusion support, 
We can convert each HTML to PDF(Header, body(actual HTML), footer) separately and then draw it in the new PDF document as it looks like header and footer added.  
1)      Convert the header and footer HTML to PDF with page height 100pt.  
2)      Create the actual HTML(body) to PDF.  
3)      Get the header and footer as template and draw it in the new document on the top and bottom of the page respectively.  
4)      Then get the actual (body) PDF and draw in between the header and footer(in the new document).  
5)      But this needs 3 level of HTML to PDF conversion. 
Please find the sample to convert the HTML as header and footer of the PDF page.

Please let us know if you need further assistance on this.

Hi James, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.  

Our WebKit HTML converter do not have direct support for calculating the header width/height based on the input HTML. As a workaround, we can use SinglePageLayout to adjust the height of header/footer. We have attached workaround sample to calculate the header/footer height based on the input HTML. Please find the sample from below link,
