Replaced, surely. I don't imagine there would be much difficulty finding a buyer for a good G&J bell.

The reverse happened at St Anthony in Menage a few years ago - the ring consisted of two Taylor trebles on a Gillett back six. The trebles were replaced by new Whitechapel Gillett-profile bells. Does anyone know whether the Taylor fittings were reused? I believe the Taylor bells were going to that place (can't remember the name) in Dorset with the six bell chime including odd-shaped bells. Has this happened?

Odd-bell frames (other than five and thirteen & above)

Seven: Chislehurst, Acomb (York).

Nine: All SS Basinstoke, Felmingham, Great Malvern (?).

Eleven: Llanbadarn Fawr

Can anybody add any more?
