St John the Baptist


Burlison and Grylls Windows

Please note this page is still under construction and links below are not yet available.

With the extension of the Church to the west for the Narthex in 1879 new windows were inserted by the firm of Burlison and Grylls in the Parish Office, Narthex and Baptistry. The company was founded by Bodley's partner, Thomas Garner.

Thomas Garner was born on 12 August 1839, trained in the office of Sir George Gilbert Scott and entered into partnership with George Frederick Bodley in 1869 which lasted until c1897. He was an able but reticent exponent of the late Gothic Revival in England. He died on 30 April 1906.
