about 1849

Three-light window with nine scenes. From top to bottom, left to right: standing figure of Christ with the crown of life (text Revelation 2:10); centurion kneeling before Christ; Christ healing a boy possessed by a spirit; Ascension; Christ stepping out of the tomb; Christ with Mary Magdalene; seeated Christ (with wounds) holding a cross (text Matthew 11:28); Christ washing the disciples' feet (text John 13:34); standing figure of Christ with children.

Church of All Saints, Gresford, Wrexham
north wall of the clerestory (window number: NII)

Given in memory of Elisabeth Frances Wilbraham (1822-1849).

Edward Hubbard (The Buildings of Wales: Clwyd) notes that although the window has been attributed to Hardman, it does not look like their work. Mostyn Lewis is correct in noting that the style is closer to a contemporary window in Llangollen, attributed by some sources as Rowland of Warwick, but probably by William Holland.
