Much information contained in this history comes from sources in the public domain. These include electoral registers, church registers (mainly those of St Katharine's, Merstham), census returns and trade directories.
I am pleased to acknowledge www.oldmerstham.org as the source of some of the pictures, which are used with permission.
Many residents, and ex-residents, have been most helpful in supplying information relating to their own or neighbouring houses.
A debt of gratitude is owed to Alex Hunter, who has made available information collected in researching his own history of Church Hill. Alex has also published two books, 'Gentlemen of Merstham and Gatton' and 'Twentieth Century Merstham', from which information has also been taken with his permission.
I also offer a vote of thanks to my long-suffering friend Peter, who has helped me considerably with design aspects of the site.
Every house in the road has received a letter introducing the history. A few residents have expressed a wish that the current ownership details of their house should not be included. This wish has been respected.
