One source states some G&J bells installed as late as 1958, with 3 bells by Taylor, 1956. Another source reports this as the last ring cast by G&J, though installed by Taylor. A third source reports all designed by G&J, which cast 3 basses, while Taylor cast 5 trebles. A fourth source confirms this and adds that the three Taylor trebles are dated 1956 while the two Taylor mids are undated, but all bear the G&J name and all were tuned by G&J. The transcription of the G&J foundry records shows the three basses as 1955, three mids as "n.d." and two trebles as 1952.
