Given in memory of John and Mary Torrington.

In The Buildings of Wales: Gwent/Monmouthshire, John Newman notes the 'development in technique and in intensity of effect' with the 1948 window at the same church. The window is singled out by Patrick Nuttgens as 'a rare moment of vigour and display', contrary to his usual work, with its 'leaded eyes, abstract backgrounds and rich deep colour'. He dates the window 1956, although it is dated 1953 in the Directory of windows published in 1955 by the British Society of Master Glass Painters.
