Church of St Seiriol, Penmaenmawr, Conwy
west wall of the nave

Given in memory of Queen Victoria.

Angels in the left-hand light hold the text from the Beatitudes 'Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God' (Matthew 5:8). In the uppermost cinquefoil angels hold the text from Revelation: 'Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life' (2:10). The text is repeated in the upper quartrefoil of the war memorial in the north wall of the nave.
