Sir Harry D'janogly

Sir Harry Djanogly, industrialist, textile manufacturer and philanthropist, was a generous donor to the Westminster Abbey restoration appeal which culminated in the cleaning of Henry VII's Lady Chapel in 1995.

A small window, designed by Alfred Fisher of Chapel Studios, can be seen in this chapel (together with windows of other donors). This shows his coat of arms and crest with Hebrew text and the inscription: 

Sir Harry Djanogly CBE

Sir Harry and Lady Djanogly were also kind donors to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries in the Abbey triforium and a benefactor's window can be seen there. His generosity also help make possible the Queen's window in the north transept designed by David Hockney.

Sir Harry was born on 1st August 1938 and was knighted in 1993. With his wife Carol Ann he supports many British art galleries and museums. His son Jonathan is a politician.

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
