I have been burrowing through a pile of old papers kept in an old chest.


Amongst the items there were the rules for a Wirral Branch Tontine.




There must have been hundreds, if not thousands, of Friendly Societies at
the time but were they commonplace for groups of bellringers?


Incidentally, benefits could be payable for those unable to work through
'old age', such persons being defined under the Friendly Society Acts as
being not less than FIFTY. I guess there are a few readers out there who
would qualify!
