[A mono-spaced font would be best for viewing this chart, which was derived from the specification printed in the Organ Historical Society's 2002 convention handbook.]

 

The Pedal 32' Resultant is formed from the wooden 16' Open Diapason and 10-2/3' Bourdon in the bottom octave, followed by the Open Diapason at 32' pitch.  The Great's 4' Octave, 2-2/3' Twelfth, and 2' Fifteenth are listed as borrowed from the Choir chamber, but the Choir's Open Diapason is listed as having only 61 pipes, and so I've shown those 3 stops as coming from the Harmonic Flute, which has 85 pipes.  On the Great, the Choir's Open Diapason is listed as "Second Open Diapason".  The stops are arranged in "normal" church organ order rather than in the usual theatre organ order, and it appears that all of the stops are white except for the black couplers.

 

The choir and organ console are located in the rear gallery, and from a photo it appears that the pipework is located in chambers at the sides of that gallery.  A movable front wall allows the sanctuary seating to be changed from 1350 to 2500 for special services.
