The memorial window to Revd Chawner was partly the result of a cooperation between Dr Dunn and Florence Nightingale. From a letter sent to Dr Dunn by Florence:

35 South St
Park Lane W
Jan 4/78
My dear Sir
I have enquired as you desired for Stained Glass Manufacturers about a Window for Crich Church in memory of Mr Chawner.
Queen Sq
is one recommended.
If you would like to send subject required size of window & about the sum to be expended Mrs Shore Smith would gladly go to Messrs Morris & see what could be done both as to beauty & economy.
May all New Year’s blessings be showered upon you & yours.
ever yours faithfully
Florence Nightingale

HURT, Miss Emma ARKWRIGHT, Mrs GELDART, Mrs MACDONALD, Miss BOOTH, Mrs LAWSON, Mrs DUNN, Mrs Mansel JONES, the Rev H.E. and Mrs FIELD, Mrs JOHNSON, Mr J.T. LEE, and the Rev W.G.PARTREE. Mr C.W.
