Both are on the North side, one within the Chancel rails, the other opposite the middle of the Nave. The former is the gift of Mrs Spibey, whose other generous gifts to St. Tudno's Church we have already recorded. The subject of this window is the scene in the Treasury of the widow offering her two mites. The window is an offering by Mrs Spibey in memory of her late husband, Mr Wm. Spibey, and bears the inscription, "In Memoriam, William Spibey." The window referred to opposite the centre of the Nave is the offering of Mrs Piatt, of Clifton Lodge, in memory of her late hus¬ band, Mr John Piatt. The subject is St. John, the Evangelist and Divine'. Beneath the main subject there is the coat- of arms of the late Mr Piatt in the centre, and partly on one side' and partly on the other is the inscription :—"To the Glory of God and in memory of John Piatt, of Clifton Lodge, born 1842, died 1902.
