“. . . The window at the east end of the Slyfield chapel, by the same artist, in 1859, commemorates the Crimean chief, Lord Raglan; while a new window in the original aisle is filled with pattern and heraldic glass, the work of Ward, in 1853, as a memorial of Major-General Howard Vyse.”

“. . . he died at his seat, Stoke Poges, Bucks., in 1853, and was buried at Great Bookham, Surrey; monument and hatchment at Stoke Poges Church.”
So much for Creighton’s “research”.
