The information in the following document was compiled by the Epsom & Ewell History & Archaeology Society (EEHAS) (formerly Nonsuch Antiquarian Society) under the direction of Martin Nail in 1963 and transcribed in 2011. It covers three places of worship viz. St. Martin Of Tours, the Congregational Church and Bugby Strict Baptist Chapel supplemented by other sources, for ease of use we have split the document into 9 separate sections:

  1. St Martin's stones and monuments inscriptions in graveyard (Please note a Graveyard Index is now available to this section).
  2. St Martin's Inscriptions on the floor and walls
  3. St Martin's WWI and WWII Memorial inscriptions To access more information on the fallen of WW1 listed here, go to our St Martin's War Memorial page where you will find an interactive photograph of the War memorial in the Church which will link you to biographies of many of the names on the memorial.
  4. Extracts from Vol II, 1809 Manning & Bray's History of Surrey
  5. Inscriptions from a manuscript copy made by Mr A R Bax c.1880 housed in the Surrey Archaeological Society
  6. St Martin's graves, gravestones and tombs disturbed in the building operation 1907-1908
  7. Congregational Church inscriptions on stones
  8. Bugby Strict Baptist Chapel inscriptions
  9. Index of occupations for St Martin's and Bugby Chapel

A plan for St Martin's graveyard has been drawn up and is reproduced here in four overlapping sections. Some of the grave numbers are not very clear but in most cases it is possible to work out exactly where the grave is.
