Subject: [Bell Historians] Valleyfield, Quebec

In 1935, Whitechapel cast a peal of six bells for the Cathedral Basilica of St.Cecilia in Valleyfield, Quebec, Canada.  I have listed the largest bell here: http://www.towerbells.org/data/NAOtherGreatBells.html#QUVF, but a question has been raised about its reported weight, and I cannot now find the source of the figure that I have published.

Does anyone have further information about these bells?
