Notes:

1. Cochrane Street congregation is now worshiping in its second church, the first one having been destroyed by fire in 1914.

2. It has had four organs:

  1. A three manual tracker organ by Peter Conacher of Huddersfield, England – 1882-1909, replaced by
  2. A three manual tubular pneumatic organ by Forster and Andrews, Hull, England, with 38 stops and 2100 pipes.
  3. After the fire, a three manual tubular pneumatic organ by Harrison and Harrison of Durnham and London, England, with 50 stops and 2974 pipes was installed in 1917. 
  4. In 1057 one of the three four-manual instruments in the province by Casavant Frères with 55 stops and upwards of 3325 pipes was acquired.

3. Since 1882 it has had six organists.

4. There have been many discussions as to which of the 3-4 manual organs in the city is the largest. Depending on the parameters of the assessment, all three can claim the honour. Cochrane Street organ has 4 manuals, 55 stops and approximately 3,500 pipes.
