Church of St Mary, Tenby, Pembrokeshire
south west corner of the south aisle (window number: sX)

Given in memory of John and Charlotte Bancroft, both of whom died in 1922.

As there are two windows by Karl Parsons in the church, could this window, with its glowing colours, also be from another maker at the Glass House of Lowndes and Drury? There is also a slight similarity in style with some of those trained at Birmingham School of Art, such as Sidney Meteyard, but Peter Cormack has recently suggested that it could be by Ballantine of Edinburgh, although no other twentieth century windows by then have been identified in Wales.
