Database Manager on December 16, 2010:

Identified through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Divided in basic cases to each side of the gallery window; a 3/13 Wicks Op. 4802 was added in 1967 in the sanctuary with a stoptab console that also controlled the gallery organ; both organs were rebuilt and enlarged by Russell & Co. in 2000 as Op. 38, retaining some of the pipework and mechanisms.
