The window is perhaps the work of Burlison & Grylls.

An open book at the top of the window has the Welsh text 'Yn y dechrae ydd oed y Gair' (In the beginning was the Word, John 1: 1).

Given in memory of Mary Jane Eliza (1843-1936), wife of George Swinford Wood of Bodlondeb. She was descended from both men depicted, from William Salesbury through her father and William Morgan through her mother.
