Very sad news.

I've known David for nearly 60 years and have fond memories of many hours we spent among the bells of Kent and Norfolk. His knowledge of bells and their history was encyclopaedic.

RIP dear friend.

Subject: [Bell Historians] David Cawley RIP

I am sorry to report the passing of the Revd David L Cawley of Canterbury who died in the morning of 6 February, aged 79, following a battle with cancer. David was a well known authoritative bell historian who for decades was a member of the Bells Committee of (what is now) the Church Buildings Council, a consultant to various dioceses, and the driving force behind many bell restoration and conservation projects. Over the years he has helped in the compilation of many of the lists in the printed editions of Dove and he wrote a number of the articles. He has been a regular contributor to discussions in this Bell Historians group and an inspiration and friend to many of its members, including myself. He will be greatly missed.
