St John's Church of Ireland, Laganbank
« on: January 11, 2020, 11:45:36 AM »
I am preparing material on war-related memorial windows in Northern Ireland and there was a window in St John's Church of Ireland, Laganbank, to commemorate the twenty members of the congregation who died in the Great War.I have a newspaper photograph of the window when it was dedicated but I am trying to locate photographs of the windows.

I know that St John's re-located to Orangefield, but I do not know what happened to the memorial window as I understand that it was not installed in the new building.

I would be grateful to hear from anyone who:
* has photographs of the windows,
* can advise where I can get photographs of the windows,
* knows what happened to the window when the church building was closed

Thanks,

Nigel,
Hope all is well with you and I wish you well with research for the hub.

Please see the link below as CMcG appears to have done some work on St John’s but since then the “hosts” have blocked photos etc that were posted.
Maybe he could retrieve some for you and with a bit of luck the window maybe included.

Beautiful windows, hope they are still around somewhere

So do I. Shame the associated newspaper article about the dedication did not name the twenty men who died! There were memorials in other churches that were lost in the Blitz (e.g. St Barnabas CoI) but the old newspaper articles reporting the dedication listed the men named.
