Church Window Commemorating Mallory.

George Herbert Leigh Mallory was born in 1886 in Mobberley, Cheshire England, the son of Herbert Leigh Mallory who was a clergyman at the local parish church, St Wilfred’s.

It is at the church that there is a stained glass window commemorating George Mallory. The large stained window shows left to right three mythical figures: King Arthur, St. George and Sir Galahad. Mallory was sometimes known as Sir Galahad.

The panel in the lower right of the window reads “In Memory of George Herbert Leigh Leigh-Mallory, born at Mobberley, June 1886, died June 1924, son of Canon Herbert Leigh Leigh-Mallory, Rector, 1885-1904.
