"Sorry to spoil things, but he could and did. The bells were installed in
1988. 1,2,5,6,7 & 8 are the original 1966 Leigh-on-Sea bells; 4th
(presumably a replacement for the damaged bell) 1987; 3rd (presumably
replacing the "lost" one) 1988. All Taylors. I rang on them on 6th April
1989. They really are a very pleasant ring. The old Kirkheaton six by T
Mears went to St Clement Sandwich, Kent, replacing a ring of five lost in
1865. They were installed in 1989/90 and were dedicated in the presence of
The Queen Mother on 19th May 1990."

Bill says the note of the P&C bell is D, so that makes it the 4th - the 3rd
must have been the damaged one.
