Hope Baptist Chapel is in the Church of England 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 of Haslemere St Bartholomew. Until 1838 Haslemere was part of the Ancient Parishan Ancient Parish is a Church of England parish which, until the 19th century, had both ecclesiastical and civil functions of Chiddingfold

There are over 1,800 names for Haslemere St Bartholomew in the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Index. We also have just over 450 names in the Surrey MI Index for Chiddingfold.

The Chiddingfold inscriptions were copied in 1980 and 1982 by Cliff and Diana Webb. A large number of the older stones in the Churchyard were completely illegible and were ignored. Many of those partially readable were incomplete.

We also have copies of Cookayne's extracts of Haslemere MIs and Alfred Bax's survey ca 1908. Neither of these latter two have yet been transcribed.
