1887

Two-light window with standing figures of David and Tudful (Tydvil).


firm/studio: Shrigley & Hunt
designer: Henry Wilson
donor: William Thomas Lewis

Church of St David, Merthyr Tydfil
south wall of the south aisle (Lady Chapel)

Cartooned by the firm's chief designer, Carl Almquist, from 'colour, layout and poses' by Henry Wilson.

The window is the gift of Sir W.T. Lewis, given in memory of his mother and sister. This is one of the earliest windows commissioned by the donor, who commissioned many windows for different churches in the south Wales coalfield and in Pembrokeshire. His armorial bearings are displayed in the upper trefoil light.

The window was moved from its original position in the north wall of the north aisle in about 1935.
