*Links:

The Dutch Wikipedia article about this town has a photo of the Dutch Reformed church and mentions the carillon.  However, the carillonneur's Website indicates that the carillon is in the Roman Catholic Willibrordskerk.
The Dutch Wikipedia article about that church has a drawing of it, but does not mention any bells. 
The Website of the Catholic church has a small photo of the tower.  A history page mentions the acquisition of new church bells in 1948, but not these bells.  It is indeed a mystery!

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unknown bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
