Database Manager on September 03, 2016:

Updated through online information from Steve Bartley.
Very handsome "Gothic chapel in ground level of church, with primary entrance from street. Chapel interior finished limestone with oak wood furnishings. Simple, but well executed facade of pipes inset in a small pointed arch, right side of altar. Console missing, but appears to have been in rear of chapel near outer wall.

Upright piano now in this position. All metal pipes are gone, with just the bass pipes of the 16' Bourdon and 8' stopped flute. Austin wind chest intact, unaltered, as well as pipe racking. The organ dates from 1914 as does the chapel, and was a 2 manual duplex action, as well as playing as the echo organ for the main organ in the church above.
