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

Visited in 2010 - Cemetery located on hillside below church and original churchyard.

Good parking and good map at entrance. Walls at top of hill then strong hedges/trees further down. Very peaceful despite being surrounded by roads.

Quite a few crosses laid down or pushed over. Old mortuary building with faded sign saying police station! Toilet facilities, seats and gardeners sheds.

Well kept, mature trees and many Yews. Metal markers at the end of some rows. Modern hillside area has very ordinary memorials. Section near mortuary for burials of Brigade of Guards – memorial with names 1878-1896, ditto 1896-1908, ditto 1908-1914, plus individual headstones. Several other impressive memorials but no mausolea.

West Surrey Family History Society CD10(Surrey Burial Index) has burial records for Caterham St Lawrence from 1543-1896.
