East window given as a memorial to all from the parish who had fallen in the First World War. It was among the largest windows in Wales made by the studio, and cost £447. Following the demolition of the church in 1992, the glass was moved to Tonbridge School Chapel, Kent. A tablet recording the names of the fallen was made by Wippell & Co., costing £190, survives in Holyhead at the Church of St Cybi (with thanks to Martin Briscoe for additional information).
