About the memorial: Decorated style window with inner two-centred arch and two-centred rere-arch with deep splay reveal and quoins bordering it. Reticulated “net” tracery above three lights. Illustrated (l to r): Figures of Faith, Charity and Hope on tinted quarry panes. Surmounting light with a heavenly dove and two lights below with painted monograms of the name Jesus Christ (IHS and HPC) Three lights at the base have painted inscriptions dedicated to William Walter Beck, Arthur Hammond Cole, Charles Edwin Mason and Walter Herbert Geffery Meire. (Meire is also commemorated on a private memorial tablet on the north wall of the church.) This window was installed “to the memory of those of the parish who have fallen in the War according to the design then produced and since deposited in the Registry of our said Court That at a meeting held on 4th May 1920 the proposal and design were approved.” (Ref: Norfolk Record Office: PD454/10/2 Braydeston Faculty to place stained glass in the East Window of the Church.) A Parochial Parish Council meeting minute of 24th June 1925 also mentions “…the church was desired to add to the new terrier…stained glass by Windley Forsyth…” The glass manufacturer that Forsyth would have worked with is not recorded but it could possibly have been J & J King, Norwich which closed down some time before 1927. (Ref: NRO SO163/30) The window was repaired by G King & Son (lead Glaziers) Ltd Norwich in 1993 (no relation to the earlier Norwich firm J & J King.) G King & Son was not established until 1927.
