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.
