Like - I think I may have told this one before - the outside loo cistern in the former Rectory at Rugby. Standing facing the receptacle, one saw an ancient cistern inscribed with the Royal Arms, and JOHN WARNER & SONS LTD/ SANITARY ENGINEERS / BY APPOINTMENT. Presumably the Royal Warrant referred to was the one for the Balmoral bells. Rather less well-known is their work (a chime of three) at Sandringham.
Sadly, the Rugby loo was replaced by a low-level suite, and the house is no longer the Rectory.

  CSZ asks "What did they produce besides bells?"

  Wrong question. It would be more reasonable to ask "so they cast bells too?"
