Further...... Having just perused < 
 > it is not really true to say that they were hung as a chime by McShane.

The design and actual hanging of the chime was by Taylors. A small part

The automatic chiming equipment which strikes the quarters and the hour 
and also plays tunes was supplied by Clock-O-Matic.
