The Ashtead Gospel Mission was formed ca 1895 in a "tin tabernacle". In 1913 it became the Ashtead Free Church and finally the Ashtead Baptist Church. The Baptist church moved to its new building (which is just along the road) in 1924.

The old building became the Constitutional Hall. It was used briefly by the Roman Catholic Congregation from 1942 to ca. 1944. The Constitutional Hall is now used by the Conservative association.

There is no graveyard at the Constitutional Hall. However early burials may have taken place at Ashtead St. Giles, the parish church.

The inscriptions for the Ancient Parishan Ancient Parish is a Church of England parish which, until the 19th century, had both ecclesiastical and civil functions of Ashtead were noted by Arthur Ridley Bax (1844-1918). The notes are undated and were probably made around 1880 or 1890. There are around 400 names in the Index which includes war graves from both World Wars.

Bax's notebooks are in the Library of Surrey Archaeological Society. They were filmed and transcribed by volunteers from West Surrey Family History Society and are used with permission.
