On a visit in 2005 we met the Superintendent for all the Elmbridge cemeteries – very helpful, no laying down but careful testing and generally sympathetic repair where problems identified. Chapel and chapel of rest opened for us – excellent 1890s buildings connected to one another. Chapel of rest now acts as Jewish chapel – Jewish plot in cemetery from 1970s. Chapel commissioned by Mr Miller with backdrop donated in 1899 by Col Charles Herbert Gurrey. Mortuary now used as storehouse.

Mature trees – Scots pines Yews etc. Nice flowers. Variety of graves – good condition with some unusual ones. Grave No 1 homes Rev Valient who gave his home Finart House to the Jewish community.

Peter Locke-King purchased Churchyard field to the south of the church and 2 adjoining fields in the heart of Weybridge 1835. Due to the demolition of the Old Kings College Hospital in Clare Market the Old St Clement Danes Cemetery had to be cleared, over 15,000 burials between 1700 and 1850, some 1,000 coffins removed to Brooklands in Jan 1914.

On 12/13 Jan 2010 thieves broke through the gate opposite Heathside School using scaffolding poles. They stole 20 sections of black railing, large metal poles, seats and picnic benches. A large van would have been required.
