About Our Company
F.H. Browne & Sons - Building Organs since 1871
F H Browne employs 12 people, managed by Stephen Bayley (Managing Director), Yvette Bayley (Company Secretary) and Michael Keays (Director). Our staff includes skilled craftsmen in cabinet making, organ case design, mechanical, pneumatic and electric organ action, leatherwork, tuning and voicing. We run an organ apprentice scheme, ensuring the current skills are passed onto the next generation, so that the organ heritage can continue to be supported and maintained well into the future.
Our workshop is in Ash, near Canterbury, where we have been since 1983. We have recently gained planning permission to build a purpose-built workshop nearby, in East Stourmouth; we eagerly anticipate moving here in 2018-19.
Whilst many of our customers are located in London and Southern and Home counties of England, we welcome the opportunity to consider organ restoration projects elsewhere.
