Friends of Surrey Cemeteries (Surrey Cemeteries: a survey, 2012):
Puttenham Heath Road B3000. Opened 1883. ¼ acre. Extended 1950s. Chapel now destroyed.

SHC 8180/1 plan of cemetery 1950 spaces 1-400 with names.

Now situated in the middle of a golf course, behind the clubhouse on a slope surrounded by a low wire fence. The parish sold land for £68 6/-2d in August 1882 and used these funds to purchase the plot for the cemetery. The total cost of the ¼ acre cemetery and mortuary chapel was £450.

Visited 2005 - Hidden in trees across fairway (but footpath signed from road). Fenced area with old section nearest to road. Middle somewhat raised with seats – possibly location of original chapel. Beyond this higher section extended into in 1950s. Paths grassed over. Generally very ordinary memorials but quite a homely feel – a couple of terra-cotta memorials.
