[Bell Historians] South Somercotes Lettering

In his book "Church Bells of England", HB Walters wrote (p.284) "Copies of
this lettering were made by the Taylors of Loughborough, and have been used
by them on their bells at Worcester Cathedral and elsewhere." The book was
published in 1912 so he is clearly referring to the 1869 bells at Worcester.
The present, 1928, bells also have this lettering. I believe that
Whitechapel has a similar set, but I don't know when they acquired it.
