On the church Website, a page about weddings has a paragraph about the bells.  A page about the bells is primarily an interview with Heather Jordan. The previous version of the Website had more information and photos.

A Facebook page about the history of the chime is very extensive, with many photos and newspaper clippings.

A YouTube video (3:07) of the chime being played during Covid-19 restrictions has a glimpse of one bell with an inscription related to the donation of the chime.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Taylor bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
