about 1919

Single-light window with a woman and child, both of whom are nimbed.

firm/studio: J. Wippell & Co. Ltd

Church of St Mary, Briton Ferry, Neath Port Talbot
south wall of the south aisle (window number: sV)

Attributed to the firm on stylistic grounds. It is clearly by the same maker as the east window.

Given in memory of Anne Heale (1842-1914) and Thomas Heale (1883-1919).

The subject of the window is not made explicit, but as both figures have halos, it is likely to represent the Virgin Mary and her mother, particularly as the window is partly in memory of a woman called Anne.
