Mid 19th century glass probably produced by the Powell workshop.
The window contains a collection of fragments which were mainly set in six panels with red borders in the 19th century.
The panels have been put together somewhat like a jigsaw and are believed to be made up of remnants rescued from both St Edmund’s and neighbouring churches.
Most of the glass in the panels dates from c.1430 – 1450, although where indicated some was produced even earlier.
Top Left and Right Panels: The panels depict naked souls praying and looking upwards.
They were originally part of an illustration of the Resurrection of the Dead from a Last Judgement scene.
Middle Left and Right Panels: Here we see angels made up of a collection of fragments from a number of different figures.
Of particular interest is the angel on the left, whose head was made c.1350.
Not only does the angel holds a palm, despite this normally being an attribute of a saint,
even more strangely on one wing is the head of a devil.
Bottom Left Panel: Contains a figure of St Barnabas holding a scroll with his name, dating from c.1300.
Two similar figures of St Matthew and St Thomas can be seen in Norwich Cathedral, and came from the same original set.
Bottom Right Panel: A seraph is depicted standing on a wheel.
Tracery: In the tracery are the partial remains of two heads.
The bald head to the left probably once belonged to St Paul, whilst on the right is a 16th- century man sporting a hat, who may originally have been part of a Crucifixion scene.
