firm/studio: Lavers & Barraud

Christ Church, Prestatyn, Flintshire
east wall of south aisle chapel (Lady Chapel)

The glass was moved from the chancel to its present position when the south aisle was built in 1905.

There were originally several stained glass windows in the chancel. One of the original chancel windows was given by the parents of Samuel and George Gilderoy in memory of six young choristers who were drowned in 1868. Another window was given in memory of the choristers by public subscription. The tragedy is reflected in the imagery of the calming of the storm and the scenes with children. A window in the south wall of the original chancel depicted the Good Shepherd, and was given in memory of Elizabeth Hunt in December 1867 (information kindly provided by Sue Christou from the church archives and Natalia McKenzie).
