Hello Chris,

Somewhere I lost the thread for this one, but I believe that the bells 
in question were for Christ Church, Victoria, and nothing to do with 

Vancouver HRC is simple, 6,7 & 8 are 1900 and 1-5 are 1906.  Bells first 
rung on Easter Sunday 1907.  However, no dedication date that I am aware of.

AFAIK all the St James' bells in Granville, Vancouver, by Taylors are of 
the same date.

I guess that it is about time we did a bell registry for North America 
too, eh?

Best wishes
