Does anyone out there have any information on glaziers rescuing medieval stained glass in World War II? My grandfather William Manning was in this reserved occupation and I am trying to find out if he took glass from York Minster to slate mines in Wales for safety. Where do I start?

Start with York Minster and ask at their History / Conservation department York Minster website. I believe that there is a City of London Guild for stained glass.


I have heard from my friend, that there is a City Guild and they have no records and are most unhelpful apparently. However, the Society of Master Glass Painters are helpful and have some records http://www.bsmgp.org.uk/.
