An other close by possibility may be Brookwood asylum which is near Woking
(much closer than Chertsea or Kingston).
Not sure how easy it would be to find records however as they would be
medical records by nature. Think that Brookwood asylum may have been large
enough to have had it's own cemetery. Just a thought.

One of my Grandmother's sisters was born in Godalming 1883 -
near Guildford. The little mite was dropped head first into a coal
scuttle, resulting in brain damage. She was placed in an institution.
No one later knew what became of her.
Possible institutions may be:
workhouses at Guildford, Chertsea, Kingston & an asylum at Caterham.
(There are others, but thought these the more likely from the little I know)
Where would records exist for these institutions - if available?
Do these places still exist today, perhaps under another name?
I know it's a long time ago, but I would love to try and find where
she spent her life and when she died. In my mind, it would be
putting her to rest.
