St Mary's Church, Potters Bar

from Dave Miller, Organist St. Mary's, Potters Bar

“We were very fortunate to have the services of Henry Groves and Son for our recent organ works. Originally called in to enlarge our existing instrument, Jonathan suggested rehoming a redundant instrument instead. This proved to be fortuitous as we now have a superb three manual TC Lewis / JW Walker instrument which is far superior to anything which could have been achieved with our original organ. One thing of particular note was Jonathan’s sympathetic use of the church – which still had to be used during the work: services and other church activities were carried out with the minimum of upset. The cost was very competitive. Jonathan and his team showed the highest level of professionalism and care and were a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending Henry Groves and Son.”

St Peter’s Church, Cound

from Professor Tim Wright, Organist and PCC Vice-Chair

“We have been very pleased with the restoration of our organ under­taken by Jonathan Wallace and his team from Henry Groves and Son. From the initial report through to the final tuning, they demonstrated not only their high level of skill but also their complete professional­ism, keeping us fully informed, con­sulting us as appropriate, managing the physical space safely, and tidily and being on time and on budget! Restoration of the organ represents a major expense, and choosing a builder of quality is vital. In selecting Henry Groves and Son, we know from our experience that we made a very good decision and we are pleased to recommend the firm to others without reservation.”

St Mary's Church, Maidenhead

from Matthew O’Donovan, Director of Music, St Mary’s, Maidenhead

“We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Jonathan Wallace and his team from Henry Groves & Son for the marvellous three-manual organ which graces our newly-reordered church building. Having had the opportunity during the project’s earliest stages of planning to see and play some other Groves instruments, I was confident that they were the right firm for the job, and I have not been dis­appointed. The highest level of professionalism, care and attention to detail was shown throughout the project, from its initial design, through the organ's complex installation (which involved extensive collaboration with the architect and contractors responsible for a major redesign of the 1960s building, and working around unexpected delays in the building work) to its final voicing and completion. All this was undertaken at a very competitive cost and to an excellent standard of workmanship. Jonathan and his team were a pleasure to work with throughout, and we are now blessed with a fine instrument, built to last.”
