St Oswald’s was a Roman Catholic chapel which was dismantled around 1998.

This is a link to the announcement in the London Gazette January 1935 that the Secretary for War had applied for the church to be registered for the solemnisation of marriages.

However we do have a note under Frimley:

A wooden chapel, for the use of the Catholic soldiers, was commenced here, Oct. 1906. The building, which will probably be finished by Christmas, is for about 300. Architect,B.Williamson,Esq. The mission, which was commenced in June 1900, is under the care of the Rev. Geo. Boniface.

Historical notes on English Catholic missions, Kelly, Bernard W. (Rev), 1907:

WSFHS has no records to St Oswald’s Church. We do hold some monumental inscriptions for the Garrison church -- St Barbara’s -- which was a short way along the road

Surrey History Centre holds marriages registers for 1935 to 1985

Deepcut is in the Surrey Heath district of Surrey

Unless otherwise stated the dates for the creation of parishes are taken from Youngs, Frederick. A., jr.. Guide to the Administrative Units of England; Royal Historical Society: London, 1979 volume 1 Southern England.
