Andrew Henderson on October 06, 2022:

According to Rev. Aaron Astley, pastor of the church, the original Edward Lye & Sons organ was renovated by R. A. Denton & Sons in 1959, and further revised by Nelson Denton of R. A. Denton & Sons in 1998, in time for the church's 75th anniversary celebrations. It is possible that most, if not all, of the original Lye pipework was incorporated into these instruments.
