This entry represents the installation of a new pipe organ. Identified from an Organ Media Foundation video of the replacement 1922 Tellers-Kent. The naming of the builder as Felgemaker is attributed, but not confirmed.

The church had a fire at the rear of the sanctuary (front entrance) in 1921. Surviving pipework from the Felgemaker is believed to have been incorporated into the new 1922 Tellers-Kent.
