They cast two twelves, although one (Buckfast) were hung dead until the tower reached a sufficient height for them to be hung for ringing. There was one peal on them before they were recast by Taylor's into the present heavier ring.

I believe that Hartlepool are the only extant complete Warner ten. I don't know of any others, even ones which have since been recast. I expect CJP will be able to provide a definitive answer.
