St Mary's Church, Ewell is the civic church of the borough of Epsom and Ewell in the county of Surrey in South-East England. Designed by Henry Clutton and consecrated in 1848, it replaced an earlier church to the South, which dated back to at least the 13th Century.

Selected biography

Sir Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Jr., CBE (born March 14, 1933), better known by his screen name Michael Caine, is an Oscar- and BAFTA-winning English film actor who has appeared in more than one hundred films.

Caine's acting career began in Horsham, West Sussex. He responded to an advertisement for an assistant stage manager for the Horsham-based Westminster Repertory Company. This led to walk-on roles at the Carfax Theatre.[1] After several minor roles, Caine came into the public eye as an upper-class British army officer in the 1964 film Zulu. Zulu was closely followed by two of his best-known roles: the spy Harry Palmer in The Ipcress File (1965), and the woman-chasing title character in Alfie (1966).

Caine has been Oscar-nominated six times, winning his first Academy Award for the 1986 film Hannah and Her Sisters, and his second in 1999 for The Cider House Rules, in both cases as a supporting actor. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1993 for services to drama, and in 2000 he was knighted as Sir Maurice Micklewhite, CBE.

Caine lives near Leatherhead in Surrey, and is patron to the Leatherhead Drama Festival.
