The present church dates from ca. 1733 although there has been a church on the site since the 12th Century. There is now no burial ground at the church. It may have been in use until the 1600s. The additional burial ground is now St. George’s Recreation Ground. At the end of the 19th Century the church crypt was cleared of coffins which were reburied at Brookwood Cemetery The Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index contains no entries for St George the Martyr
