In 1915, the 6 original bells were recast and a new tenor and treble added by the local Croydon firm of Gillett and Johnston. The church, restored in 1872 by Sir Gilbert Scott, has a window dedicated to Elizabeth of Hungray, and there is also now a New Millennium window.

St Mary’s Homes next door to the church were also designed by Sir Gilbert Scott. This has a chapel attached dedicated to Mabel Fanny Hunt and is usually open. ‘Walker’ Miles is buried in the church yard.
