Identified through information in Casavant documents, courtesy of Simon Couture and Denis Blaine. The tonal director was Stephen Stoot. The cost was $ 4,060.00.

The organ was originally installed in 1905 as Op. 224 at Douglas Methodist Church, and sometime during a series of mergers by the Douglas congregation the organ ended up at Wesley United Church; the 1947 work as Op. 1856 was for a new console and rebuilding; the reed stops were sent to the factory for repairing and revoicing.
