Here at Coriander Stained Glass we are delighted to share with you pictures from the opening ceremony of the Children’s Memorial Garden at the South West Middlesex Crematorium that took place yesterday, Saturday 8th December 2012.

The beautiful garden features our “Peter Pan” window and soon we will be uploading the third and final installation of our Peter Pan series of videos over the coming days.

First of all, some pictures from yesterday’s opening ceremony.

Coriander Stained Glass Peter Pan window final

And finally, the completed Peter Pan window in place in the garden.


We’ve still been busy in the run up to Christmas, and we are currently working on several projects.

Glass Painting

In this picture you can see our glass painter Margaret is producing some traditional designs for a front door in Bletchingley, Surrey.

Decorative Stained Glass

Here one of our lead light makers is putting together some stained glass to be used as decorative secondary glazing in a Kensington appartment.

That’s it for today but check back next week for the final installment of the Peter Pan videos, and an Edwardian restoration project we have been working on, too.
