That's odd because most Warner bells of that period respond to tuning 
extremely well. The sixth (now the eighth of ten) at Wye, cast in 
about 1913, went to Whitechapel a dustbin and came back a superb 
bell. I gather that the fourth at Marston Bigot is perfectly 
acceptable as well.

Perhaps the Rickmansworth bells are of a different profile to the 
examples above.
