This instrument was originally built shortly after the church opened, during 1909-10, by Lindsay Garrard of Lechlade-on-Thames, Glos., sometime Captain in the Dragoon Guards.

The present console dates from the 1957 rebuild by Nicholson & Co, which presumably explains why the keyboards are C compass but the soundboards only go up to A - visiting organists beware!

The last major restoration was carried out in 1983 by Trevor Tipple of Worcester, and the organ remains in his care today.  BOA members assembled here in May for an illustrated talk on reed voicing by Mr Tipple (see left photo), who also performed on the St Saviour's organ.
