The Memorial Stained
34 Boucher Street East Meaford, Ontario, Canada
Great to Humble
Fragment from Chichester Cathedral
Special and unique memorial windows at Christ Church were the inspiration of the Reverend Harold Appleyard, Rector of the Parish during World War 2.
Harold Appleyard, on leave from the parish, served as a Military Chaplain during the war years. He noticed shards of broken stained glass around bombed churches.
He gathered fragments and received permission from local church authorities to have the glass leaded and returned to Christ Church as a memorial for Canadian men
and women who served overseas.
The fragments were formed into four windows and are the reason many visitors come to Meaford. For tours, please call 519-538-3365
