It would help the Stone ringers if details could be given for any other
bells which are specifically war memorials. The local argument is that bells
are intended to be rung and are hardly a fitting memorial in their present
derelict state. Any useful suggestions would be appreciated!
Christ Church, Bradford on Avon, is a WW1 memorial ring and the bells are
rung regularly.  There is a plaque at the base of the tower with details of
the bells and the donors which can be seen when you go into the church
(though its position is not good).  Perhaps a plaque at the base of Hanley
tower, visible to as many people as possible, with details of the bells, to
whom they are dedicated etc, and the reason they were removed to Stone might
be a good idea.
