Church Organ
Wellow Village | Nottinghamshire
Church Organ
An organ costing £100. was put into the church in 1898. The vicar, The Rev. W. Beecher, replaced it at his own expense with the present organ costing £500 in 1903. There was a complete renovation of the instrument in 1974. Mr. Beecher was a Priest who had considerable private means and thoughout his ministry in the parish gave very generously to the poor and the needy and to anyone who could win his sympathy. He was equally generous to his church to which he gave many gifts and saw to it that the building never lacked anything for want of funds. He died on March 27th, 1914, at the age of 61 years. He seems to have been something of a character who "greatly enjoyed guns and his jokes." It is also said of him that if someone died of whom he did not approve, he went to Lincoln for the day and left the curate of Ollerton to take the funeral.
