Perhaps by Burlison & Grylls. In 1876 the window would have been one of the earliest by the firm in Wales. The window in the south aisle chapel is more certainly by the firm.

Given in memory of John Parry Jones Parry and his wife Mary by their children in 1876. The window notes that they were buried at Llanbedrog.
