Does the 15 (as in 15 in C) actually relate to something measurable?

Yes. Their 1877 catalogue offers sets by size, also 15C, 16B etc. I have other catalogues too. Can check tomorrow, unless anyone who knows more about handbells than me can give a definite answer without the need to delve

Can anyone tell me whether Warners had a system for 
numbering handbells by size in c1880, and if so, what it 
was?  I'm thinking of something like the modern Whitechapel 
system where size 15 is a C.
