Lifeboat Disaster Window 1947

In memory of the crews of the Mumbles Lifeboat and the SS Samtampa who lost their lives off Sker Point, Porthcawl. The window was errected by public subscription in 1977. The design of the window was by Tim Lewis, stained glass artist of Glantawe Studios, Morriston, Swansea. The lower area depicts images of Mumbles, the centre features the tragedy and the upper part shows the transition from earth to heaven with eight white disks representing the souls of the crew who all perished.
