User contributed comments

The Caerwys PCC discussed the design for this window and voted to apply for a faculty on August 16 1937. However, the company of H G Hiller & Company was dissolved in 1932 and Hiller's obituary (which is not without error) has Hiller retiring from business to Anglesey in 1936. But the window does look like Hiller's work!
