> Colchester's Bells of Hampshire is quite boring - only listing
inscriptions, a lot of which are wrong!

It's very much in the Victorian mode of bell history. As you say,
inscriptions only with lots of mistakes. There are plenty of other examples.
A favourite of many Victorian bell historians was to invent punctuation
marks in inscriptions where none existed.
