Who loved and served this Church

There is no information concerning the actual age of these windows but the original church was built in the late 19th century.

The topmost light in the west window bears the letter ‘M’ crowned. This mirrors the symbol to be found on the cover of the font and was erected as a thanksgiving for the recovery of Mrs Clifton in about 1850.
