There is some doubt when this chapel closed. It was built somewhere around 1200 and was certainly in ruins by 1829. It is referred to in 1736 without any indication of whether it was still functioning.
The old chapel is just over half a mile from the modern 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 - St Michael's. It is likely that this old chapel, like the new one, was 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 is no graveyard at either West Humble chapel, 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
