for those that fell during the Great War

The eye is naturally drawn to the magnificent stained glass window that is dedicated to the twenty five young men who fell during World War I. All were members of the original St George's United Free Church, and  a list of all those that fought from this church membership can be found on an accompanying plaque.


It is not original to the building but was a later addition, designed and created by prominent English artist Robert Anning Bell. In its creation, it was decided that a wrought iron screen McLennan had placed in the chancel was to be removed. It was at this time that McLennan decided to leave the church, something described as 'very Paisley'.


Bell was a former Head of Design at Glasgow School of Art; he also has mosaics featured on Westminster Cathedral. Out of all his works he described his designs in stained glass to be his finest accomplishment.
