Standing woman (Charity) holds a flaming heart while in front two kneeling women hold a cross (Faith) and an anchor (Hope).

size: 40 cm (width) [approx]

Church of St Mary, Tenby, Pembrokeshire
south west corner of the south aisle (window number: sX)

Given in memory of John and Charlotte Bancroft, both of whom died in 1922.

The window could be the work of Ballantine of Edinburgh.

During the commissioning of the window there was disquiet that the flaming heart held by the central figure could have been confused with the Catholic image of the Sacred Heart.
