Church of All Saints, Gresford, Wrexham
north wall of the clerestory

Given in memory of Elisabeth Frances Wilbraham (1822-1849).

Edward Hubbard (The Buildings of Wales: Clwyd) notes that although the window has been attributed to Hardman, it does not look like their work. Mostyn Lewis is correct in noting that the style is closer to a contemporary window in Llangollen, attributed by some sources as Rowland of Warwick, but probably by William Holland.
