Stained glass leaded windows, comprising of a central window and two side panels. On the central window is a dedication to the Methodist men of Bunbury and its environs, who served and died during the Great War 1914 to 1919 (although the cessation of hostilities was 1918). It lists 58 names of those who served and 18 who did not return. The side panels contain scrolls.
