Bell Notes

Somewhat off-topic, but I wonder if those amongst us who are musically knowledgeable could be kind enough to translate notation to frequency?

The bells where I ring are designated  F,  Eb,  Db,  C,  Bb,  Ab,  from treble to tenor (7.5 cwt).  This conveys nothing to me, whereas frequency (Hz) would be very meaningful.

The various web sites which claim to give the answer have only added to my confusion!
