Database Manager on February 27, 2018:

Updated by Andrew Moore, who gave this as the source of the information: Organ is owned by my employer.
This organ was removed by my employer, Mark Cooley, and is in the process of being installed in his workshop. Visible facade pipes from the great were left at the church and to my knowledge are still there. They will be replaced with pipes that more closely match the 1935 tonal scheme. The console in not original; I have been told it was a prototype Holtkamp copy Moller built and was then sold to the church at a discount. The console may be modified in the future to accommodate a 2/7 Robert Morton theatre organ that is being installed beside this organ. Although both organs will play from this console they will still be completely mechanically separate. This is very much a side project that will be worked on as time permits. I will send further updates as the project progresses.

Database Manager on January 19, 2012:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The organ started life as an 1894 Johnson & Son two-manual; a third manual and division was added by Hook & Hastings in 1918; in 1935, Möller rebuilt and electrified the organ and added a new console.
