According to RW 31 December 1937 p.870 all eight bells are (still) by Thoma=
s Osborn 1790, rehung with new fittings by Gillett & Johnston in the old oa=
k frame which was strengthened. The weights are given as 6-0-26, 6-1-8, 6-3=
-16, 7-2-10, 8-1-1, 9-3-6, 12-3-21 and 18-0-1 in F

Details of the bells are recorded in the Gillett tuning books (Vol.13 p.75)=
for 1937. These would give the weights before tuning, diameters and pitche=
s etc. Perhaps DRL might fancy another lunch break in Croydon library?
