East window given as a memorial to all from the parish who had fallen in the First World War. It was among the largest windows in Wales made by the studio, and cost £447. Following the demolition of the church in 1992, the glass was moved to Tonbridge School Chapel, Kent. A tablet recording the names of the fallen was made by Wippell & Co., costing £190, survives in Holyhead at the Church of St Cybi.

With thanks to Martin Briscoe for additional information, his image of the window can be found on the War Memorials Register (Imperial War Museum).
