On a 'similar' theme, it would be interesting to know which rings of 
bells were cast during the war. On the Bells in Worcestershire site 
it states that Hanbury were the last ring of bells cast by Taylors 
before the war started. Possible ones cast after the war had started 
are Doncaster, Birmingham St. Chad (1/11/1939?) both from 
Loughborough. There may be others, and from other founders, 
particularly as hostilities were coming to an end. What was the work 
entrusted to the three bell foundries during the war?---
