EXPLANATIONS and CAVEATS:
- The first column of the table identifies each bellfoundry by a short name;
the second column shows the corresponding code letter
used for that bellfoundry in the database.
The full name and location of each bellfoundry can be found on the index page linked above,
as can a link to an index of that foundry's work on all types of instruments
listed on this Website.
- The following nine columns each show a particular type of work, as follows:
Cplt - a Complete instrument was installed (and has not been enlarged)
Fndt - an installed instrument laid the Foundation for a later expansion
Intm - an Intermediate extension of an existing instrument
Extd - Extended an existing instrument to its present size
Rcst - Recast or Replaced bells without changing an instrument's range
Tund - Tuned existing bells
Mixd - a Mixed job by multiple founders (very rare)
Kybd - a Keyboard replacement with different manual/pedal ranges
Unkn - Unknown work (details remain to be discovered)
- The last column presents totals of the numbers on each row, while the last row presents
totals of the numbers in each column.
- NOTE: Any count of founders' contributions typically exceeds the corresponding
number of instruments, unless all such instruments were the new work of a single founder,
were not subsequently modified, and were not replacements for previous instruments
at the same site.
- This table was built directly from the database, whereas the foundry index for the same area
(linked above) was constructed piecemeal as the individual site data pages were added
to this Website.
Human error in the latter process might produce discrepancies between this table
and the linked index.
Please report any discrepancies noted, using the email link at the bottom of either this page
or that index page.
- Foundries not listed above have not made any known contributions to the extant instruments
in this region, though they may have provided bells for instruments that no longer exist.
That would be cause for a valid discrepancy between this table and the linked index.
