The extension of the London underground system in the 1920s saw the result of many new suburbs been created and as such new parishes formed.  Several of these chose to have Compton organs installed in their new church buildings.

One such example is St Matthias Church in Colindale which contains a 2 rank Miniatura instrument which was built for the original church in the 1950s but reinstalled in the present church building when built in 1975.
