As of Jan.2013, the Cathedral Website seems to be in the early stages of development, as there are many bits of "to be replaced" boilerplate text, broken links, etc., as well as a page about the bells to be supplied.  But there is a large photo of the tower in the rotating series on the home page.

NOTE  This ring is not yet listed in Dove's Guide or on the ANZAB Website because the bells have not been installed.  However, they are in the hands of their owner.

Since there is no predominant founder, these bells are not indexed by foundry.
