I was reminded by chance just now that there is another window at Garboldisham, Norfolk, commemorating Major George Frederick Molineux-Montgomerie, Grenadier Guards, killed 22 October 1915. He was also a bellringer, and is commemorated on the roll of honour of the Central Council for Church Bell Ringers, which is kept in the tower of St Paul's Cathedral. The online version shows photos of the window, and various other memorials in and around the church http://www.cccbr.org...=1&casID=252140

Another lovely window design, and it looks like it is to Canadian, Australian and South African troops by the look of the flags they are carrying ?

Windows were included with all other types during the recording campaign implemented by the
National Inventory of War Memorials
You can search their database by type of memorial, including windows.
Perhaps an update to the NIWM would be a useful centenary project, especially as digital photography was in its infancy during the NIWM's collecting years.

It's a very large window design with the following plaque underneath.

Some really excellent photos of memorial windows, especially those from Northern Ireland, it is also pleasing to see a window from Co Cork.
Well done to everyone who has posted photos here. Surely there is an opening for someone to produce a quality book illustrating them on a county
or area basis. I look forward to seeing more postings on this subject.
