St. Anne's became a separate ecclesiastical parishan ecclesiastical parish is an administrative area within the Church of England or Roman Catholic church. It is distinct from the civil parish, a local government unit in England in 1847.

According to the church website the church has never had a burial ground. However burial registers for St Anne's for 1850 to 1863 are held by the London Metropolitan Archive and have been transcribed by West Surrey Family History Society (see below).

There are no names from St Anne's in the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index. Older burials may have taken place in the original parish church (All Saints church). There are just over 860 names in the Index for All Saints church, the inscriptions date from 1420 to 1902.
