I was informed that the Church of the Good Shepherd in Brighton was 
the first Simpson Tuned Whitechapel ring of bells, cast around 1913, 
8,(13-2-16) in F.
Whitechapel carried out some work there about a year ago now 
rebushing the clappers, and informed the tower captain that the 
bells were special to Whitchapel because the were their first 
Simpson tuned bells.
Admitidly they dont sound very good inside the tower, but that is 
due to clapper knock, but outside they sound quite magnificent.

I dont know if anyone has any further information, or could varify 
this, it would be interesting to know.
