I was one of the 1st two artists to make windows for the cloister in the Coychurch Crematorium, Bridgend, South Wales. At the time I was a part-time lecturer in the stained glass department at the then Swansea College of Art working alongside Tim Lewis under the Head of Department Howard Martin.

Editor's response: I understand that the names of more of the artists responsible for these windows are known, so it would be good to know more of their names and identify which ones they made.
