Chimes in the British Isles:
index by year of completion

This is an index to 71 existing chimes in the British Isles (including Ireland), in order by year of completion to the current number of bells (possibly by removal to the present site), regardless of when the bells were cast.  Instruments which were completed in the same year are listed in order by the city name without regard to the exact date on which the installation was finished.
After the year, a letter indicates that it is

C - when the complete instrument was installed;
E - when the instrument was enlarged from its previous size.

Sites are grouped into decades (unknown first); within a decade they are blocked into groups of 10.
