There are no inscriptions for West Byfleet in the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Library.

The monumental inscriptions for Byfleet St. Mary were noted by Cliff & Dianne Webb in 1976

“The inscriptions inside the Church were all copied. Those in four areas of the Churchyard (Sections A,B,C and D) were also copied in full, but in the large modern area to the rear of the Church (Section E), only the stones prior to 1865, and a few others of interest were noted, since so many older stones in other churchyards remain to be copied.”
a note from 1976 from the cover of the microfiche.
