Reynolds-Stephens, Sir William Ernest (1862–1943). British Art Nouveau and Arts-and-Crafts designer, born in the USA. His finest work is the interior of the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Great Warley, Essex (1901–5), with an exquisite Art Nouveau Rood-screen and other furnishings, described by Pevsner as an ‘orgy of the English Arts-and-Crafts variety of the international Art Nouveau’. Harrison Townsend designed the building.
