Notes: The chapel was originally known as Mary Lyon Chapel. Ten ranks, including the Solo division, were added by Ernest Skinner as his Op. 511 in 1938. William Baker & Co. began restorative repairs in 1976. Work included moving the Harmonic Tuba from the Solo to a new Skinner replica windchest over the Great. A harmonic Orchestral Flute from Op. 567 (Christ Church, Cranbrook - removed long before the Mander rebuild) was installed in its place in the Solo.
