    Single-light window with an image of a ship and praying figures at either side of the dedication.


    artist: Frederick W. Cole

    Church of St Paul, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan
    south wall of the south aisle

    An almost identical window at the Church of All Hallows-by-the-Tower in London is signed by F.W. Cole and dated 1973, providing the date and maker for this window.

    Dedication: 'Remember Captain George Boothby and crew of the "Royston Grange" lost with all hands in the River Plate. 1972. R.I.P.'

    For an account of the tragedy, see the Official Journal of the United Kingdom Maritime Pilots' Association, 9 January 2012. The ship caught fire when it hit an oil tanker in thick fog, which explains the fire at the top of the design.

    St Paul’s at Barry Dock held its last service at 10.15am on New Year’s Eve – with people from all the Anglican Churches of Barry joining the local congregation for the celebration. Anyone know what will occur with the stained glass windows ?

    Another job.

    Hi Dave,
    I sailed on Mabel Warwick as 6th Engineer from Nov 1962 till April 1963 after having served my time at Central Marine Engine Works. She was also an ore carrier built in 1960. She was broken up in Eleusis in 1983
