The window was dedicated on Sunday, January 19th 1930.
It was presented to the church by local steel magnate and philanthropist William Rufus Lewis JP (1856 - 1938) of New Lodge Gorseinon in memory of his late brother Colonel David Lewis JP, VD (1849 - 1928) of nearby Fernhill.
A former High Sheriff of Glamorganshire, Colonel Lewis had been churchwarden of All Saints for twenty six years up until his death.

Editor's response: Thanks for supplying this detail. According to my notes from the James Powell & Sons order book at the V&A (AAD /1977/1/26, p. 269), the order is dated 15 March 1929, so the window will have been made during that year, and was evidently completed and installed by January 1930.
