The date for three of the windows would appear to be 1953 rather than '59. They appear in the list of Edwards' work on the website of Benyon Stained Glass with no name for the church but listed under Llangoed. The works were commissioned by Mrs Christie of Llangoed in memory of members of her family.

Editor's response: What is curious about the dating is that one of the windows (St Gwendoline) clearly states that the first three windows by Carl Edwards were given in 1959. However, I note that the faculty for the windows in the National Library of Wales (which I have not yet consulted), seems to date from 1951, suggesting that the process and commissioning began then.
