About the memorial: The memorial is a stained glass window created by the master craftsman Karl Parsons, as a memorial to the fallen of the First World War from East Harptree, and installed in St Laurence East Harptree in the 1920's. It features St Laurence, St George, and St Agnes, with beautiful and poignant cameos below. It is in a distinctive style that betrays its Art Nouveau associations. Parsons had been a pupil of Christopher Whall, an important glass maker and teacher who subscribed to the Aesthetic Movement led by Rossetti and Burne Jones. An illustrated talk about the window and its maker, by Peter Cormack, a noted scholar of 19th and 20th century British and American stained glass, William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement can be found at https://eharptreechurch.co.uk/about-the-church-of-st-lawrence/
