The description starts at the crown of the bell, so 3,2-3,3-2 would indicate three wires on the crown of the bell, two above the inscription band and three below, three where the sound bow begins to curve out and two at the lip. 

There are infinite variations on this, for instance the usual configuration on a modern Whitechapel bell is 3,2-2,3-2.

Hope this helps.
