Here is another Gillett question. When did they actually start casting their
own bells, and was there a time when they just made clocks and used other
people's bells? Were any bells cast before they started listing them in the
tuning books?

I have come across a reference to a bell at St Paul's, New Beckenham. The
clock and a 4 cwt bell were supplied in 1876 by Gillett & Bland, a year
before bells appear in the tuning books. I haven't been able to inspect the
bell yet but it appears to be too early to be a G&B bell.


P.S. Was interested to see the Lovesguide hit counter go through the roof
following the BBC's coverage of Chris Cooper's attempt to "bring down the
clergy" in Leeds...
