The church is in the Church of England Diocese of Southwark. The Southwark Diocesan Record Office for churches and parishes in the modern administrative county of Surrey, and those London Boroughs that were in Surrey until 1965, is the Surrey History Centre.
This is where you should find any surviving parish registers,
An Order in Council of 1956 created a United Beneficean united benefice is a union of two or more Church of England parishes which remain distinct legal entities but share an Incumbant with Limpsfield and the St James' church was listed in 1958. It was last known to be in use for public worship in 1960 and declared redundant in 1973. A further scheme of 1975 to lease it as a private chapel to the Leveson Gowers family (the Patrons) failed; it was vested in 1980 in the Titsey Trust as a private chapel and monument. The building is still consecrated (but not under faculty jurisdiction) and in use for occasional services.
