St Mary's Rickmansworth

This window by the Lady Chapel in St Mary's Rickmansworth contains a small panel with the Paschal Lamb carrying the Banner of Victory. Underneath are the letters Alpha and Omega. There is a surround of corn, grapes and vine leaves.

At the bottom of the panel there is the inscription:

  • To the Glory of God and in affectionate remembrance of Herbert Henchman Clubbe Churchwarden 1922-1942 RIP

The panel is signed Starmer. W P Starmer of Harpenden worked in Bushey and belonged to the School of Herkomer.

Alongside the Clubbe window there are four panes of glass arranged in a diamond. The top pane is a fleur-de-Lys, the bottom pane is a bunch of grapes. There is a convolution, or swirl, on each side. There is no information on these panes but they were probably made from pieces of old glass.
