There are three options if compiling a Holbrooke catalogue: by opus number, by date of composition, or by genre. The first is of very little use to the run of listeners since the numbers seem to bear little relationship to the dates of composition. My list on here of the orchestral music is chronological but very messy because of Holbrooke's practice of renaming works, revising works or chopping them up and reusing chunks.

The list on Wikipedia, arranged by genre, compiled by John is absolutely the best way to approach the compositions and try to make sense of the nomenclature. I borrowed from it in compiling my list. It is as definitive as John could make it and is a superb piece of research!
