    1. Christina Chan says:

      Hi my Father Mr C Hill was in the Surrey Home Guard Base in Mitcham is there any records I can look at Please , as I am doing family history It be lovely to have some record of what he did

      1. Ian says:

        You could try the website of the West Surrey Family History Society, which covers the Parish of Mitcham.

        Home guard service records can be obtained from the Ministry of Defence on the Gov.uk website. There is a cost & it is probable to be one or two sheets of A4 with basic details, rather than actual duties & exercises he took part in.

        Also worth checking with mod on gov.uk if your father was entitled to & applied for his defence Medal (not sure how long you had to serve to get this). WW2 medals had to be claimed & not all men did.

      2. Mrs Alchin says:

        There is a photo of the Mitcham battalion. If you search for 24th Surrey Mitcham Battalion under https:/photoarchive.merton.gov.uk and hopefully see your dad?

    I’m trying to write my family tree and have come across one of my ancestors was a patient in Brookwood Hospital, although he was only in there for 12 days, he died there and I am very curious as to how he died on the 29/11/1877 his name was Henry Chipping.

    1. Jackie says:

      Hi Traceyann

      The Brookwood Hospital records are held at Surrey History Centre, Woking where you can look at the records
      and if you wish for a payment take a photo of the page/pages of your ancestors record which should tell you more
      about the few days he was an inpatient. Good luck! Here is the link to the page for information –

  10. Pat Pepperrell says:

    Hi I am researching my family history and i know that i had a great uncle who was a patient at the Botley’s Park Hospital, he was my grandmothers brother. He passed away in 1966 and I would very much like to know where his last resting place is, if he was buried or cremated. I have searched through the appropriate records but i cannot find any trace of him at all. It would help if i knew which registration district his death is registered, if it is Surrey N or Surrey Mid E.
    Thanking you in advance

    1. Rosemary Chuter-Avison says:

      Hi Pat Pepperell
      I had an Uncle as a patient in Botleys Park Hospital and when he died in 1976 it says Sub-district Runnymede on his paperwork and I also can’t find out anything about him
      We never got to meet him
