Friends of Surrey Cemeteries (Surrey Cemeteries: a survey, 2012):

St Johns Way, Eastworth Road A317.
Runnymeade DC Civic Offices Station Road Addlestone KT15 2 AH. 01932 838383. Opened 1914.

Almost full. Council wishes to provide extra space at Painsfield allotments but unable to do so until it finds alternative allotment space. Chertsey Abbey was next door.

SHC 6576/1/11 1886-1935 register on film of St Peters burials. SHC 5219/1/2 1851-1890 register of St Stephens parochial burial ground quoting name, some ages, date, plot letter and number plus observations variously including address / trade / relationship / mode of death / vault …..

Visited in 2005 - Well kept – incorporates St Stephens Burial Ground in original area – main cemetery and two extensions across the lane from BG and cemetery.

Notice regarding inspection – a number of monuments taped as dangerous although as solid as a rock. Some others already laid flat. Original area walled – main cemetery partly walled and partly fenced. Office and WC. Chapel in original area has bell tower but also an external bell. Feature of original area is grave rows painted onto walls AND brickwork picked out to indicate spacing. Very unusual cast-iron metal scroll early 1900s in main new area. Very municipal feel, planting of trees good but thin. Original area well stocked with Yews – felt like a churchyard. When revisited several years later still being well kept.
