The chapel, which was formerly a barn, is commonly known as the Chapel of Ease West Humble. The Church of England website "A church near you" gives its dedication as St Michael.

West Humble St Michael is a Chapel of EaseA daughter church within an ecclesiastical Parish, or a chapel in an outlying area of the parish that is more convenient for parishioners to attend to Mickleham St. Michael and All Angels. There are the ruins of a much older chapel of ease a short distance along Chapel Lane.

There is no graveyard at West Humble, burials would most likely have taken place at Mickleham. The monumental inscriptions for Mickleham St Michael and All Angels were noted by Alfred Bax in June and September 1893. His notes are in the collection of Surrey Archaeological Society and were transcribed by volunteers from West Surrey Family History Society in 2015. There are around 500 names from Mickleham in the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index
