It has an east window commemorating Canon Vernon Wollaston Hutton, vicar of Sneinton (St. Stephen's) from 1868 to 1884. The east window cost £200. The screen was the gift of the sons of Thomas and Alice Tew. The Lady Chapel reredos was provided by Mrs. Bowman-Hart, and an altar in St. Michael's chapel is to commemorate Charles Matthews and his son. There is a richly decorated font.
