Historical notes on English Catholic missions, Kelly, Bernard W. (Rev), 1907:
This mission was started in 1899 and for some time was served on Sundays from the Franciscan Priory of Chilworth. ... The new church in the Early English style (981 ft. x 201 ft.) designed by Mr. F. Walters was opened by Bishop Amigo, June 27, 1906. Cost of the building together with the “commodious presbytery” £4,700. Fr. St. George Hyland has charge of the mission.


St Edmund’s has daughter churches at Milford St Joseph and Elstead(now closed). Originally the Roman Catholic parishes of Haslemere(until 1924) and Bramley(until 1955) were part of St Edmund's parish.

St Edmund’s is in the Ancient Parishan Ancient Parish is a Church of England parish which had both ecclesiastical and civil functions of Godalming St Peter and St Paul. The Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index has around 1100 names for St Peter and St Paul Godalming. The inscriptions were collected for WSFHS in 1984 by Alan & Kathleen Benny,

We have also acquired an digital copy of Cokayne,G.E. Surrey parish registers & MI's, Volume IV which includes some Godalming St Peter and Paul MIs. At July 2016 this had not been transcribed nor indexed.
