Both Thow and Rev JGM Scott The Bells of Exeter Cathedral give the
weight as 7 0 22.

rings of 12 website has the other weight. I wrote the Exeter entry
for this, but can't remember the source for the weights - probably
Thow. I inspected the bells a couple of weeks ago, but there is no
weight chart in the tower. The bell in question is one of relatively
few cast during the first world war (1915 in this case). Its
inscription makes reference to this fact: 'Recast in War, I hope to
herald peace, when all shall love, and "Hymns of Hatred" cease.'
