I can confirm that they are not at Birdsall. Though I think you now have your answer.Andrew

I’m doing various reconciliations between various data sources to construct the recently announced Dove Bell Register.


The Church Heritage Record has 2 bells recorded as follows for BIRDSALL, Diocese of York that I don’t believe are there. Details are:


Birdsall: St Mary

ChurchCode: 643024

Ref: RMC 5/67 JA 3/2017

Bell 1. 20.5", c.1760Hz, cast 1731 by Samuel II Smith

Bell 2. 29.5". 1110Hz, no cast date, John Potter of York, “Listed for preservation”


This is at odds with GAD's NBR and (behind the scenes) Dove which states that St Mary's, Birdsall has 3 bells dated 1824 by Thomas Mears II. A general web search sides with the notion of 3 more modern bells.


So does anyone recognise where these Sam Smith and John Potter bells might actually be?
