A quick internet search reveals;

7, 8, 11 & 12 at St Albans are Philip Wightman 1699 - though what may 
happen to these in the future I'm not sure

St Giles, Holborn has Wightman bells, the 7 & 8, cast by William and 
Philip, 1685

Great Chishill, Cambs, 4 out of 5 bells cast by William and Philip

St James Garlickhite, London 1700 Bell cast by Philip Wightman for St 
Michael, Queenhithe. 1875 St Michael, Queenhithe was demolished, and 
its bell given to St James'. Now tenor of 3, though for swing chiming 
(from C B of L)

In 1873 All Hallows Tottenham had 6 bells by Philip Wightman cast in 
1696. How many remain in the current octave I have no idea.
