By Irishkate  
Designed by Rene Lalique in collaboration with local architect A.B. Grayson as a memorial for Jesse Boot - commissioned by his wife Lady Trent. The Boot family and Lalique were neighbours in France and Jesse boot had a home in Jersey where this church had been badly needing renovation.
Many thanks for V&C for Howard Davis Park War Memorials.

Nice to see the glass church again, can't remember if I took any photos inside here (I did of the outside) when I visited it way back in 1988 & - if I did, goodness knows where my prints are! 😬 Thanks for sharing with us Kate, and bringing back memories 👍
