This is the first of eight posts – one for each bell – noting the inscriptions from the old bell and its replacement.
Mears and Stainbank is now known as The Whitechapel Foundry.
The old treble bell was inscribed:
MEARS AND STAINBANK, FOUNDERS, LONDON
THE TREBLE AND 2ND BELL WERE GIVEN
TO COMPLETE THE OCTAVE
R. W. PITT., RECTOR
The new treble bell is inscribed:
REMEMBER BEFORE GOD
