Burlison and Grylls is an English company who produced stained glass windows from 1868 onwards.

The company of Burlison and Grylls was founded in 1868 at the instigation of the architects George Frederick Bodley and Thomas Garner. Both John Burlison (1843–91) and Thomas John Grylls (1845–1913) had trained in the studios of Clayton and Bell.[1]

After Thomas John Grylls' death in 1913, the firm was continued by his son Thomas Henry Grylls (1873-1953), a founder Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters. Its London premises were bombed and records destroyed in 1945 during WW2.[2]
