parish [no bell details given]

Gypsy Hill, Christ Church, Upper Norwood: Rubbings in Tyssen Collection,

WARNER & SONS LONDON 1867. / (Royal Arms) / PATENT

“Dove” 1st.ed. (1950) lists a chime of 8 tubular bells

GPE Southwark survey notes - March 1975: Bell hung for chiming by iron
lever. Wooden frame. 

1. Warner, 1867                                  24⅞”

Also eight tubular bells, tenor 9’ long

The tubular bells are mentioned in 1913 when there was some consideration
of replacement with real bells
