The Ringing World of March 12th 1954 (p.174) gives a list of places where F=
rederick Brunning worked when he was employed by the Days. Shardlow and Bra=
ilsford in Derbyshire are on the list. The bells were rehung then. The fram=
e is the work of Francis Butcher of Duckmanton (see Church Bells of Derbysh=
ire Part 3, p.295).

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)
