Database Manager on June 13, 2016:

Updated through online information from Jonathan M. Bowen.
The organ has since been rebuilt and unified in every possible way. This was done in the early 2000's. In the 1970's the church was renovated and the console moved to a fixed position in the center of the choir loft. It was placed back to its original location during the early 2000's. The facade was retained from its previous 1914 Hook and Hastings.
