Here is some recent information.

play both gallery and chancel.
- Console replaced with 4 manual console sometime in the late 1980s,
Status is - still playing.
(This was my parent's home church and I am an organist hence have
followed the status of this organ since I was a child. It was a
gorgeous instrument in an acoustically wonderful huge neo-romanesque
church. It never sounded anything like a theatre organ.
