So he was almost certainly a nonconformist, since they filled most of
the ground.

The site was cleared back for a sitting out place in the City. The
tombstones were recorded and a floppy disc with all the burials is sold
by West Surrey FHS (the publishers) or Back to Roots Computer supplies
in Gloucester (who advertise in FTM). If there is any difficulty in
locating them, come back and I will rummage for the details (everything
in 50 odd boxes after our Family History Feast day, so not easy to lay
hands on just now)

You could get a copy from the PRO, but they charge a minimum 10 pounds
for postal oreders, (unless things have improved lately) so getting a
researcher to collect it would probably be cheaper.
