Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by C Hardgrave - Maker

Charles Hardgrave (1848-1920) was born in York, where his father Michael was a coppersmith in Fossgate. He won a scholarship at the National School of Design, South Kensington (now the Royal College of Art), with a design for a five-light window. In 1871 he entered the studios of Messrs. Powell of Whitefriars. He exhibited at the Royal Academy designs for mosaics and glass. Probably his most successful windows were the great north transept windows in Bristol Cathedral, the east window of Romsey Abbey, and the east window of the church of St. Edmund King and Martyr, Lombard Street.
