Memorial organ presented by W.G. Turner of Humberstone Lodge as a memorial for his wife, Kate.
The specification was drawn up in consultation with Major L.V. Wykes of Hampton Lodge, Stoneygate,
The organ stands under the tower at the west end with its huge case of Open Metal pipes in prospect.
The tonal structure is typically Romantic and of Walkers style of the 30's. The tab stop console is placed at the east.
A note of interest is that the case design is almost similar to those of the organ at Port St Elizabeth Cathedral in South Africa where the present organist of St Mary's, Timothy Lees, was Musical Director.
