Hi Leni.  Whitefriars did do commercial stained glass for hospitals, schools , and other businesses, so it would not be out of the question for them to have done designs for normal domestic buildings, especially if the houses were part of an "estate". The Museum of London has over 3,200 designs by W/F apparantly so it may be worth your while sending them your photo to see if they can through any light on it (no pun intended!)

Sue, sorry those two place names are not listed. Cheers  Emmi

........and I've heard there's a lady who lives in Harrow Weald who's got a stained glass panel in her front door. Incredible Patrick. And studys looking like that with windows like that are the stuff of dreams.

Hi Anne,
 As far as I know only Dennis Hadley has done any serious research into the Stained glass windows of Whitefriars but I could be wrong !

OK, thanks Patrick. I'm assuming he hasn't published it in book form yet?

Hi Anne, Loads in both Cumbria and Lancs.The following are listed, however, it is of course possible that the buildings no longer exist!???

Brilliant! Thanks Emmi - I'll add the info to my list of places to visit - I have a lot of graveyards to visit this year in pursuit of War Grave photos and family history stuff so I can check out the windows in the churches at the same time. I think all the Cumbrian churches still exist - don't know about the Lancs ones you gave though.  I'm nearer to Carnforth, Lancaster, Morecambe, Garstang area which is north Lancashire. Blackburn is east Lancs, Blackpool is west Lancs (about an hour south-west).

I don't know how much there may be local to me as there were two stained glass works in Lancaster whose (fabulous) work appears in many local churches but I have been taking photos of stained glass windows for a while and am slowly trying to get around them all within a reasonable distance of where I live. (Yes they will eventually go online too along with any info I can find about them.)
