Notes:
The final between Finlison and Thorold was not played for lack of time. The Westminster Papers of 1 May 1875 (p.2) says that 'in the second round Mr. Thorold beat Mr. Finlinson, whi divided the first and second prizes', but this is contradictory: why would they divide the prizes if Thorold won? The error is corrected in the 1 June 1875 issue (p.22). The Chess Players' Chronicle of Jun. 1875 says that Thorold gave Pawn and Two Moves. There is no mention of odds between Finlinson and Cockayne.
