It is thought that the engine room winches were made by a different manufacturer (the 'Shipbuilder' mentions Chambers, Scott & Co., though it's possible this refers to the overhead hoists).
The large winches in your image are probably the 3-ton deck cargo winches, and the smaller ones the 15-cwt boat winches. The engine room winches *may* be similar in appearance, but we really have little evidence.
