The Chancel Windows

The chancel windows all bear dedications from people who were the Duke’s friends during his lifetime. The most famous of these were the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) and William Gladstone then Chancellor of the Exchequer, later Prime Minister.

The other windows were given by Frederic Ouvry, the Duke’s solicitor, John Douglas Cooke a newspaper owner in London and Henrietta Josephine Dennett who attended the Duke in the final few months of his life.

The windows are not stained glass, in which the colour is incorporated into the glass material but the colour and details are painted onto plain glass.
