Abbey Stained Glass was established in 1986 by father and son, Ernie and John Garvey. They previously worked at Elders Walkers, where Ernie was foreman. They have now collected almost 100 years stained glass experience between them. Since Abbey Stained Glass was established it has remained a family run business, with John's daughter Jo-anne joining in 1996, followed by his son David in 2003.
