Frederick W. Cole (1908-1998)

Stained glass designer. Frederick W. Cole designed for William Morris & Co. of Westminster in the 1930s and 1940s. He later became their chief designer after the war, when he was invited to re-establish the firm and train new staff. After the firm closed in 1958 he worked for Wippell & Co. until 1961, and then ran his own studio in Fulham until 1971. Cole continued to design windows for them until his death.
