I believe that a similar claim was made in contemporary RW concerning 
St. Mary Southampton, but it might have related to the first war 
replacement ring as opposed to the first ring.

> Returning to Mike's original suggestion, I can add that Salford 
Priors were claimed at the time (RW 8 Feb 1946) as "the first complete 
restoration of a peal since the war". The G&J records how that the 
bells were cast/tuned between 19 Nov and 15 Dec 1945. The dedication 
took place on 18 Jan 1946
