I don't happen to have the figures for Cripplegate to hand. For the 
others I have:

Cornhill: 20.8 cents per octave
Great Yarmouth: 7.0 cents per octave
Bow: 1.9 cents per octave.

These are average values for the whole peal, done by carrying out a 
regression fit against (in this case) Just tuning. Any one pair of 
bells (e.g. 5th against tenor) may give different values due to 
errors in tuning.
