Ecclesiastical law - Faculty - Alterations to church - Installation of stained glass window in memory of former parishioner - Whether faculty should be granted.
Objects which adorned or beautified the church and comprised part of its fabric were not memorials in the strict sense, although they might be erected in memory of a particular individual, so the established principle, that a faculty for the erection of a memorial should be exercised only where a case of exceptionality was made out in relation to the character or service of the person to be commemorated, did not apply. Where a petition was brought for the installation of a stained glass window, the test of exceptionality was inappropriate and the petition was to be judged instead on the merits of the proposed window itself.
