>> Herbert Goakes, a ringer at St John's, Peterborough, said that he rang for a wedding at the Cathedral in the 1920s, and that was the last time that they were rung.

Michael Goakes, who must be some relation, still rings at March. I
will contact him and see what he remembers. When I saw him in March he
did say the bells were rung before the new ring was installed.
