Oxcombe, All Saints, Stained Glass
The east window is by Heaton, Butler & Bayne and shows the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene discovering that Christ’s body is no longer in the tomb; instead an angel tells them (the text above) ‘He is risen, He is not here’.
This was commissioned as a memorial to the parish’s dead of WWI by Grimsby timber merchant, Sir Francis Sowerby Bennett JP who, from 1912, owned Oxcombe Manor House as a summer residence.
