Altar by Barkentin & Krall, designed by Krall himself, 1911, presented to Queen Alexandra by King Edward VII's friend, Rodman Wanamaker, on the first anniversary of the King's death (6 May 1911), together with the reredos (made by William Tower of Kempe and Tower) and the altar rails (see Ashton 6). Like the reredos it is of solid silver; it has the royal arms in the middle, upheld by angels either side.
