Further to Knaresborough bells:

Four of them (4,5,7&8) have crosses on them - the one on the fourth has a
fleur-de-lys and a crown [Mary??], the others are like four letter "C"s with
a square in the centre. It is reputed that the eight were a recasting of
four old bells. Could these crosses be an indication of this?

Also the tenor has a double inscription band. In the upper part there is an
engraved inscription whilst that in the lower band is cast-in. Also the
date is missing after "of London Fecit" - was this bell destined for
somewhere else? Any other 18cwt bells cast around this time - was it a
reject from Coventry?
