Regarding the restoration of 1887-8 Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states
"The chancel screen has also been thoroughly restored, and a new organ, costing nearly £600, presented by Major Welby"
There is an inscription on the organ case stating
"TO THE PRAISE AND GLORY OF GOD
ALFRED WELBY DEDICATES THIS ORGAN 1887"

Footnote: The organ case was designed by John Francis Bentley at the time of the restoration of the church by Sir Arthur Blomfiled in 1888. Bentley was asked to make a design based on the celebrated organ at Old Radnor, which dates from the early 16th century and is said to be the earliest case surviving in Britain. It is striking mixture of Gothic and Early Renaissance. T C Lewis the organ builder, considered it to be 'a thousand times better' than the original.
