Whilst the subject of the relationship between Mallaby and Warner is
being discussed, this seems a reasonable time to raise a question I
have been meaning to ask for a little while:
Who was responsible for casting bells on behalf of the clockmaker JW
Benson, and are there any still in existence?
I have a copy of the 2002 Benson compilation by Mike Bundock and
Chris McKay which includes a catalogue reproduced from c. 1922.
Several illustrations show bells to be supplied with turret clocks,
both 'ordinary' and 'hemispherical' shape, drawn with JW Benson Ltd
or similar as the inscription.
