St Alban was built as a chapel of ease for Windlesham St John the Baptist. It is mentioned in the 1911 edition of the Victoria County History of Surrey without a date. It is not mentioned in the 1851 religious Census.

The monumental inscriptions in the Society's collection are from St John the Baptist and were noted by Cliff Webb in 1977

We also have a copy of G E Cokayne's notes on Windlesham churchyard from ca 1890 (courtesy of Surrey Archaeological Society).
