Having sent the above I have now taken a closer look at the original and 
see that below it is a peal at Worcester and then one of 5,003 Grandsire 
caters at St. George's, Kingshithe. The tenor weight is given as 34 cwt 
although this does not necessarily confirm a ring of eight rather than a 
ten or twelve. I am unable to trace Kingshithe but given its likely 
riverside location I wonder if this is an old name for St. 
George-in-the-East, Wapping Stepney. This apparently had an eight of 
such a weight but I can find nothing to relate it to the name 
Kingshithe. Can anyone confirm and perhaps give details of the bells 
that were lost in the war please.
