In January 1921 the Hugh Barr stained glass memorial window was installed at East Kilbride West Kirk.
It was designed by a lady artist, Miss Chilton, R.S.W.A., London, and completed by the Abbey Studio, Glasgow.



Unfortunately the lighting was poor and therefore the image is so dark that itís very difficult to read the inscriptions.
