OUVRY stained glass

There are a couple of vicars who each spent several decades in Wing, thereby ensuring I'm intimately acquainted with their handwriting!

The first of these was Peter Thomas Ouvry who passed away in 1891. Today I have uploaded a new memorial inscription page for the Ouvry family - this contains not only their family gravestone, situated on the edge of the graveyard bordering the Vicarage, but also the stunning stained glass memorial to Rev. Ouvry inside All Saints. On the webpage I've included a newspaper report of the unveiling of the stained glass in 1895.

In future I'll generally be ensuring that you can click through on any photo on the website to see a larger version, and this is the first memorial inscription page I've done this for.
