I quite agree with George. The three clock chime bells are earlier and quite separate from the eight bells off the chime.
Prints will be scanned to Carl.

As to the six bells / eight bells supplied in 1871 either six were ordered first then another two directly afterwards, or there is a misprint in the catalogue - it would not be the first.

  Many thanks to David and George for the additional details. Is it 
  possible that the apparent conflict in number of bells supplied in 
  1871 might result from combining six new bells with two of the clock 
  bells to form an octave chime, with two bells doing double duty with 
  the clock? 

  Absolutely not, we have photos of the clock bells AND the separate chime of 8 (via a relation of Ran Clouston)
