If the inscription is exactly as you say it is more than lkikely that the bell was cast in the period 1859-1865 when the style of the Whitechapel Foundry was George Mears & Co; it is I believe the only time that the "& Co" was used by the firm and inscribed on bells.

  Hello Bell Historians,

  I hope you can unravel a question that I have.  I have a Mears bell, and I have not been successful in determining the date it may have been cast.  On the crown it says "Mears and Co. London."  There are no initials in front of Mears, and I'm not sure there is even a period after Co.  It has a 10 on the crown also.  

  Thank you for any help on this.
