Built on land that had contained the Philanthropic Society’s Farm School 1926. Council had considered land at Sunnyside in Chart lane but this had been purchased by Godfrey Searle who owned the adjoining church fields and wished to keep as an open space. Later he gifted 2 acres to the Scouts & Guides.
Visited 2006 and met the manager – very friendly, opened the chapel for us and gave us leaflets. His office at the cemetery is responsible for Reigate, Chart Lane, also managed by Reigate & Banstead Council.
