Nutfield Road A25. Nutfield PC.
Opened 1899. c 1-2 acres. Chapel demolished in 1962.
Visited 2006 - Cemetery very lush, no buildings but some nice topiary (trimmed yews as crosses and boxes). Facing north just off A25 with pull-in from road, double gates (chained) and single gate, no metalled paths. Varied trees including a line of trees at the base of the hill but a semicircular space beyond them. Yew hedge to road. Oldest burials seem to be furthest from gate surprisingly. Plantings on graves protected from rabbits.
SHC P26/2/1-4 receipts and payments for burials 1899-1946. Lists names of those buried – no obvious pattern of fees. Loan repayments and interest are also included and this shows a balance of loan outstanding in 1901 from Charles Maw to the Nutfield Parish Council of £1801 5/- 8d with interest at 3% - half yearly payments of £50 15/- 9d to cover both interest and part loan repayment are also recorded. Original date of loan not clear but after Charles Maw’s death in 1905 the debt is purchased by the London & County Insurance Company – still at 3%. Likely he lent £2000 at end 1896 at 3% for 30 years. (Charles Maw buried in Dorking – see biographies in SHC)
