I am not convinced that private ownership necessarily implies secular even if it may be true for the Oxford Colleges.

I appreciate that some of the towers are detached from the chapels, which may be part of the consideration.

 What is the position for the Curfew Tower, Windsor Castle?  It is not physically attached to St George’s Chapel, but like the Chapel it is under the jurisdiction of the College of St George.  Most of the ringing is not for religious occasions (but some is).

Holy Trinity, Staunton Harold is privately owned and that is definitely not a secular tower!
