Hello George,

Although I got to see the bell relatively close up today, one cannot see 
all the way round as it is suspended from a beam and the public is on an 
adjacent catwalk in front of the Smith clock.  There is no access round 
the back.

I can confirm that it is John Taylor and Sons 1909 (I know we knew 
that).  It also says something like "G. E. Storey, Jeweler".  I'm not 
too sure about the S in Storey as it is a highly decorative letter.

Best wishes
