It has seems to have a royal cypher (ER and a crown) - that would 
make it either much earlier or later than 1932. My guess is later - 1950s?

The cypher would also suggest that it was not manufactured for a 
private company. Incidentally, there is a similar bell for sale at 
the moment at an architectural salvage yard in Hungerford and I have 
seen others.
