*Links:

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the building has two photos of the tower.  The text describes the tower clock and the carillon.

The Website of the Foundation for the Memorial to the Fallen of Brabant has photos of the tower, but says nothing about the carillon, and little about the church building that houses the memorial.

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