Pair of two-light windows with standing figures of the Evangelists, their symbols below. Each stands with a book in his hand, except John, who holds a chalice. Quatrefoils above depict an angel holding the text 'The Everlasting Gospel' and St Cecilia.

technique: stained glass

Church of St James, Cardiff
south wall of south aisle

Dedication: 'Given by Elizabeth Baker as a thank offering for a life's blessings.' 'In loving memory of Charles and Annie Ashwin devoted parents & very faithful members of this Church. Christmas 1949'

The date given on the window comes as something of a surprise given the conservative Gothic Revival style. Probably by Burlison & Grylls.
