Looking for mental health records, Long Grove Asylum, Epsom, Surrey, England

I've been looking for online records for patients of Long Grove Asylum in Epsom. My 2x great-grandmother Kate Gurney (nee Waterman) died there in 1919 (profile linked) and have been wanting to find more information about her mental state. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find any information, and was wondering if anyone here knew how to find such records?

Based off my family's not-very-detailed explanation of "she went nuts and died", I assume her condition to probably be described along the lines of "insanity" or "lunacy", but would like to check for myself.
