The first St. Dunstan's Roman Catholic church was built on Percy Street ca. 1898. The original Catholic Mission opened ca. 1895 using a private house. Before the mission was established Roman Catholics were admitted to worship in the Chapel of St. Dunstan at the Inkerman Barracks.
Historical notes on English Catholic missions, Kelly, Bernard W. (Rev), 1907:

Percy street now seems to be part of Victoria Way/Guildford Road and the church site under the new Victoria Square Development. The very approximate location of this church was TQ 00353 58665.

Around 1923 this new church was built near the junction of Heathside Crescent and White Rose Lane. This church was closed in 2008 when the new church opened.

The church of Our Lady Mother of God, Kingfield, opened in 1962 as a Chapel of EaseA daughter church within an ecclesiastical Parish, or a chapel in an outlying area of the parish that is more convenient for parishioners to attend to St. Dunstan. This church closed in 2006 in anticipation of the new St. Dunstan being opened.

The church was located in the Anglican 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 Woking Christ Church.

There was no graveyard at the St Dunstan's Church. However, Brookwood Cemetery is just under five miles away; Woking Crematorium just over 2 miles distant, and the graveyard of the Roman Catholic church of Sutton Place St. Edward the confessor is just under four miles away.

The church was in the Woking district of Surrey.

Unless otherwise stated the dates for the creation of parishes are taken from Youngs, Frederick. A., jr.. Guide to the Administrative Units of England; Royal Historical Society: London, 1979 volume 1 Southern England.
