“…The west window is a composite one, consisting of three lights each in memory of different persons, but all erected at the same time, and to the one design. The centre one is in memory of William Cockburn Sharland, Esq., J. P., who entered into rest June 22, 1904, and who for years was a churchwarden and Sunday school teacher. This was paid for by public subscription. The south light is in memory of Eliza Webster, the mother of Mrs. Schoobridge, the wife of R. W. G. Shoobridge, and the north light of Charlotte, the wife of E. Schoobridge, Esq., J.P., of Bushy-park, the mother of R. W. G. Shoobridge, at whose expense both these side lights were put in. The rose windows at the top are particularly beautiful.”
