A stained glass window erected by public subscription commemorates William Cockburn Sharland who was the churchwarden and Sunday School teacher for many years.

There died at Sydney during the week Mr. William Cockburn Sharland, formerly of New Norfolk, and brother to the rector of Bellerive. The deceased gentleman was called to the bar in England, but never followed his profession, and of late years resided in Hobart, where he devoted himself assiduously and unostentatiously to charitable work. Many poor people in Hobart will mourn a sympathetic friend and helper.
Examiner (Launceston), 27th June 1904.

The west window is a composite one, consisting of three lights each in memory of different persons, but all erected at the same time, and to the one design. The centre one is in memory of William Cockburn Sharland, Esq., J. P., who entered into rest June 22, 1904, and who for years was a churchwarden and Sunday school teacher. This was paid for by public subscription.
