2.Set in the lean-to Baptistry below the light 1. is a flat headed, three light window with coloured stained glass; this is one of the memorials to the fallen of the Second World War. Viewed from the interior the south light shows a helmeted Saint Martin wearing a red cape and holding a sword. On his left side he is accompanied by his horse and on his right a gold and white Bishop’s mitre is included. In the bottom right corner a man is depicted holding out his hand in a begging position. Close to his left leg is a line drawing of a church on a hill. The centre panel carries the name Nicolas in a scroll top right and shows the Saint standing in a wooden boat, holding a cross in his right hand and a lantern in his left. On the right is St Michael the Archangel, his name emblazoned on a scroll. He too holds identifying insignia, the scales of justice in his right hand and eternal torch of fire/light in his left.
The text across the bottom of all three lights reads:
No maker’s mark is visible.

The right light is decorated with only a simple gold crucifix in the centre, with the left light the same crucifix supported by an orb decorated with a cross. Most of the surrounding glass has a slight blue tinge.
In the bottom right corner is the maker’s mark identifying it as the work of Pope and Parr, Nottingham.
A group of three slender tall lancets with the centre light slightly extended. The left light depicts St Peter holding a large key under a scroll bearing his name. In the centre light are two figures, one over the other. Christ dressed in a red robe and holding a chalice is uppermost, with the seated St. Lawrence below. In the right light is St Paul also in a blue robe, holding a long sword in his left hand and a book in his right. A scrolled inscription with his name is over his head. Both above and below the stained glass work the glazing is squared leaded plain glass. At the bottom spanning all three lights is the inscription:
No maker’s mark on the glass or other information was found.
In 1965 the then National Coal Board paid for the removal and storage of this window, fearing that it may be damaged by ground subsidence due the extensive coal extraction in the vicinity. It was reinstalled and rededicated in 1967.
