It is correct. The frame seems to have been mixed, ie bells 1,2,5 & 6 were
in cast iron side frames on a wooden grillage & 3 & 4 in all wood (see
Lincolnshire Bells & Bellfounders p253/4 & 298). Liverpool is dated 1828
(see Pickfords Bellframe, a practical guide....p6).
The six bell frame at Wainfleet S Mary at 1844 seems to be a candidate for
the earlist WORKING frame.
