Indeed - the tenor may not have been tuned. However, it looks as if all the
bells were in the foundry in 1911 and may have been weighed. Certainly, if
some of the other bells have been tuned, then the correct details have never
been published.

But has it been tuned? I can't see any tuning marks on this one in the 
picture - all of the others visible in the photos appear to have marks of 
machining, but not the tenor. It would be necessary to inspect the bell to 
be sure.

The tuning on the others is in the soundbow, which suggests that the 
intention was simply to line up the nominals. If this is the case, it seems 
reasonable likely that the tenor would have been taken as the datum and 
consequently left uncut.
