Charles Thomas Cracklow was an architect and surveyor who meticulously recorded Surreys churches in beautifully detailed drawings and engraved them for publication using the relatively new invention of lithography or drawing on stone. Each drawing is accompanied by a measured plan of the church and a description, providing important information for the appearance of the countys churches before later alterations.

His book was called ‘Views of the Churches and Chapels of Ease in the County of Surry‘ (London, 1827). The title includes the older spelling of Surrey.
