I seem to remember being told when I lived in Leicester that Taylors
contracted out some of their headstocks to Cort's iron foundry in St Ives

        It is my understanding that Whitechapel, G&J and Taylors cast their
        headstocks and frames in house.

        Am I correct ?

        Andrew Wilby's recent letter of announcement regarding the future of
        the Taylor bellfoundry included the words "highest standards of bell
        and iron founding." I must confess to having been surprised at that.
        In spite of my long familiarity with the excellence of Taylor's work
        (having begun to learn carillon playing on a Taylor instrument more
        than half a century ago), I had never been aware that they were
        involved in casting iron.
