Help requested with Altar Frontal research

Does anyone recognise the Altar Frontal embroideries below?  We’re currently researching their history and are hoping somebody will be able to provide us with some information about them.

For the red frontal below, we’d like to know a date, who designed and/or worked it and how it came to St James’s.

The fabric below was donated to the church in 1971.  We’d like to date the embroidery and know its history – did it belong to Queen Marie of Romania?

If you have any information which will help us to conserve these these beautiful embroideries, please contact Rev Canon Julie Ramsbottom (

Many thanks.
