With regard to Dickon’s inquiry re the necessity to have a bell at the
consecration of a church Canon CII reads as follows “In every Church or
Chapel there shall be provided at least one bell to ring the people to
Divine Service and to toll at Funerals”. Although this Canon is probably
not enforced these days so far as I am aware it has never been repealed so
it might be that this has been interpreted as mandatory and might account
for a bell being borrowed for the consecration of a church. There is a
photograph in LBBF of the bell at one of the Scunthorpe churches which is
wheeled in and out of the building before services!.
