The information in the D&N booklet on Roker is what I was supplied with by
local ringers; it was one of the towers I wasn't able to survey myself.  So
it's quite possible that one of the dates is different.  However my
understanding is that they were cast with the intention of creating a
complete ring of ten.

Does St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh qualify as a complete ten
from the start?  My notes say that they are Taylor 1879 and from the
information in the Buildings of Scotland volume that is when the central
tower and spire were built.  The two west towers were added quite a bit
later, in 1913-1917.

  These comments about Roker do not agree with the details in Bells of
  the Durham and Newcastle Dioceses 1979.
  Perhaps Howard could submit the correct details.
