Further information from Ted Grantham to Pastór de Lasala on 4 December 2017

The Twelfth on the Swell replaced the Echo Gamba

The Fifteenth on the Swell replaced the Viol d'Orchestre (now at 16' on the Great, replacing the original Viol di Gamba TC which was installed on the now broken up organ at St Phillip de Neri, North Bridge.

The Piccolo on the Choir replaced the Dulciana (now stored)

The Clarionet on the Choir is cheeked on. The documentation on the National Pipe Organ Register (NPOR) does not mention the Clarionet. It is likely that this stop was added later.
