Stained Glass at St Alkelda's church
Above. Three light window showing the baby Jesus being presented with doves.
The window is dedicated to Ann Waring(?) and was erected by Mary and Ellen in 1891.
The left window shows Jesus the Shepherd. The middle window shows Jesus the preacher\teacher. The right hand window shows his followers looking for him after he has been taken down from the crucifix.
This beautiful window has the following memorial at its base. "To the glory of the ever blessed trinity and in loving memory of John who died April 9th 1893 and of Sarah who died April 20th 1878 eldest son and youngest daughter of the late Christopher John and Frances Anne Geldard of Cappleside." In tiny writing to the right of the dedication, the following can just be made out "An offering from their Aunt Sarah Openshaw."
There are two distinct family coat of arms in the windows beneath the angels Rest and Peace...though as yet, I've not been able to identify them.
Unfortunately, this is slightly over exposed, and also the bottom of the window is obscured by the beautiful altar screen, so I'm unable to see who was responsible for this window, or to whom it was dedicated.
Above. Three light window with the quote "To do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy god."

This window is dedicated to the loving memory of Anne Hatten (?) died 5th of May 1900, and dedicated by her husband and son.
