Index of all sites by "miscellaneous" makers

Carillons and chimes throughout the world contain bells supplied by a variety of bellfoundries.  There is a separate index page for each major bellfoundry, plus one for unknown foundries; this page collects together references to work by minor or "miscellaneous" foundries, i.e., those which did not produce sufficient work (that we know about just now) to have their own index page (yet).  This index identifies the makers of great bells that are not contained within instruments or collections of 8 or more bells, but not those which are so contained.

For an explanation of what this index contains (and does NOT contain), and of the additional details on each entry, see our Bellfoundry Indexes Advice.
