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

Eastworth Road A317. Small burial ground around chapel.

New cemetery across lane which now forms entrance. Opened 1800 c ¼ acre. It is unclear why only central part of walled area around chapel is designated as the burial ground – it could be that it predates the chapel (quite possibly).

SHC 5219/1/2 index of burials 1851-90. In date order within alpha – name, section, plot number, date of burial, observations.

Visited 2005 - Chapel with bell tower and external bell and burial ground now forms part of Chertsey cemetery. Burial ground itself has been extended within walls without demarcation between original burial ground (except on map). Strong churchyard feel with many Yews and other mature trees. No sign of laying down in BG but cancer has spread to the main cemetery areas with many taped graves and some already laid down.

Revisited. No changes to condition of ground. Still used as a walk-through by children from the school behind.

West Surrey Family History Society has details of war graves which are in the new cemetery across the lane from the old St. Stephen's Burial Ground.
