I happened to look at the John Taylor website.

I noticed the Kingston St Mary bell which per Somerset by Massey has an 
inscription band attached by rivets by L&J to their new 1876 bell. 
Massey states they did the same at Hardington Mandeville to their 1879 
bell but it was removed & preserved - I assume that bell & band 
indicates the shape of the holes in the bell made by L&J?

I assume the wholes were made after the bells were cast? Did they drill 
the bells to makeĀ  holes to try to fix the rivets? Were the holes 
through the whole thickness of the bell or only near the surface? I 
assume it did not help the tone etc. of the bells?
