The painting of St. Christopher fills the blocked-up window in the south west corner of the church, by the children’s corner. No one seems to know exactly when this window was filled in, but it was possibly in the 19th century during one of the many vestry rebuilds.
The sign under the painting says:
IN MEMORY OF ERNEST HENRY MURRELL SIMMONS, BORN 19 NOV 1865, DIED 26 MARCH 1935.
