Not necessarily.   The ring is more likely to have been tuned to the 
flattest bell, which could well not have been the tenor.

I don't think WBF had a tuning book in 1911, so Nigel Taylor probably 
isn't going to be able to help us ...unless he had the time (I doubt he 
has) to go through the Foundry Day Books!
