The Roman Catholic church of Leatherhead, Our Lady and St. Peter was opened ca. 1923. There had been a Mission chapel in a house in Linden Gardens since 1915. The previous year, 1914 the small Roman Catholic population was served by the chaplain to the military hospital in Bull Hill. The catholic parish went onto to support two further daughter churches in Ashtead and Fetcham.

There is no graveyard at the church however older burials may have taken place in the Ancient Parishan Ancient Parish is a Church of England parish which, until the 19th century, had both ecclesiastical and civil functions -- St. Mary and St. Nicholas. The graveyard was surveyed by Alfred Bax ca 1890 and transcribed by West Surrey Family History Society volunteers in October 2015. There are over 1,000 names from Leatherhead in the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index.

Randalls Park Cemetery & Crematorium is in Leatherhead although this didn't open until ca. 1961.
