About the memorial: Such is the simple inscription beneath the beautiful window in St. Martin Church, Lincoln, by Mrs Herbert Wilson of Beaumont House, Lincoln, to perpetuate the memory of her only son Lieutenant C.G. Hayward. The window is situated on the north side of the Bishop King Memorial Chapel under the tower, and consists of three lights with tracery above. In the centre light is portrayed the figure of St. George, the saint being depicted in armour holding a lance and a shield emblazoned with the red cross associated with his name, the deceased officers features being represented in those of the saint, and resulting in a very striking likeness. The western light contains the Lincolnshire Regiment badge at the top and beneath the arms of Pembroke College, Cambridge of which the deceased officer was a member when war broke out. The eastern light has at the top the badge of the R.F.C. and motto "per ardus ad astra" whilst beneath are the arms of the Hayward family. The whole forms a striking addition to the series of stained glass windows with which the church is enriched, and was designed and executed by Mr. H. Victor Milner of London, of whose works there are already examples in St. Martin's and other churches in Lincoln. The ceremony of dedication took place on Sunday morning [23rd October 1921], and was performed by the Bishop of the Diocese (Dr. W.N. Swayne). Note: St Martin's was demolished in the 1970's. fate of the window unknown
