St George Esher ceased to be the parish church around 1865 when it was replaced by Christ Church. St George's is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and is an Art Centre.
There is another St George’s church in Esher — St George West End, built ca 1875.
WSFHS holds a copy of a listing of the Graves in St George's produced in 1962. We also have a copy of G.E. Cockayne's survey ca 1897 however Cockayne is very selective in his listings. Our thanks to Surrey Archaeological Society for allowing us to copy material from their archives

According to the Victoria County History:
St. George's was known locally as "Sandy (i.e. Sandon) Chapel". The Manor of Sandon or Sandon Chapel was thought to be the endowment of the Hospital of Sandon which was dissolved in 1436. Sandown Park Racetrack now stands on part of the former Manor.
