Bibliography/Comments:
Chancel redecorated approximately twenty years after construction; perhaps later than other windows. Stylistic differences can be seen between this window and other signed Reith windows in this church; no drapery glass and much less use of opalescent glass. This window does not have protective plating over the painted areas as do the signed Reith windows.
