probably 1920s
Two-light window with standing figures. Stephen stands holding rocks, while Alban holds a martyr's palm and a sword. A crown is at the centre of an upper trefoil.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: Charles Powell

Church of St Jude, Swansea
south wall of the south aisle chapel

Installed as one of a pair of adjacent war memorial windows, by the same maker as the east window, which was also given as a war memorial. The three Lady Chapel windows are included in the lists of windows by Charles Powell and successive lists by Christopher Charles Powell published by the British Society of Master Glass Painters. They are improbably dated 1939 in the 1952 Directory, even they are included in Charles Powell's list of windows in 1930.

Texts: 'But he, being full of the Holy Ghost looked up steadfastly into Heaven.' (Acts 7:55); 'They loved not their lives unto the death' (Revelation 12:11).

Given in memory of all of the men from the parish who died in the First World War.
