A. H. Cocks, in "Bells of Buckinghamshire" (1897), says that the six
bells were destroyed with the tower in 1803. He cites Lipscomb "The
History and Antiquities of the County of Buckingham" (1847) and Browne
Willis (1682 - 1760). One bell is recorded in 1552. Five are recorded
in 1637. The sixth seems to have arrived in or after 1752.

Be careful with Browne Willis. I have been told that he can be notoriously
inaccurate at times.
