‘There is a memorial window at All Saints’ Church, Jesus Lane, Cambridge paid for by John Murrish in memory of his wife, Kate Louisa, and installed in 1944. It was made by the artist Douglas Strachan and, in honour of women’s wartime achievments, it champions four famous women: Elizabeth Fry, Josephine Butler, Mother Cecile Isherwood and Edith Cavell. It is known as the “Womanhood Window” and can be seen when the church is open, usually Saturdays from 10:00-16:00.’
