Very briefly, Day went out of business in about 1930 and Alfred Bowell of I=
pswich finished off Day's last job at Downham Market. There's certainly no=
Day material in the Bowell archives (which I have recently listed). There=
is a Day testimonial book which gives details of a lot of the firm's work,=
but it only goes up to 1908 (and Brailsford isn't mentioned in the index)

Hi All,

Assistance please!

My local tower bells (All Saints, Brailsford, Derbyshire) were rehung (an=
d maybe retuned?) reputedly by George Day, of Eye Suffolk in about 1913. I =
am trying to find out what work was actually undertaken at this time. Now, =
while I have found assorted references to Day in terms of bells he had hung=
/rehung, I can't find anything about the company.

Does anyone know when the company folded or was taken over? It is possibl=
e that a company that tokk them over might have retained the earlier record=
s and I would like to contact them.

Thanks in anticipation,

Chris Booth
(in damp and cold Brailsford)
