Bellfoundry indexes

The bellfoundries listed below have supplied bells that are (or were) contained in carillons or chimes that are described on this Website.  For each such foundry, the link given is to an index page which lists all such instruments (and any "great bells") that are known, in chronological order of installation.  Thus instruments which have bells from multiple foundries, or in which bells were installed over a period of years (especially those which developed from chimes into carillons), will have multiple entries in these indexes.  Other work by these foundries (single bells, peals, clock-chimes, etc.) is not indexed, though such bells will be mentioned in the Remarks section of a site data page if they were later incorporated into a chime or carillon, or if they are companions in the same tower with a chime or carillon.

These foundries, along with other known bellfoundries for which no index pages have been made, are also shown in a list by country.

Makers of bronze bells

There are also some foundries that have contributed to only a few known installations.  These do not (yet) have separate index pages, but they can be found listed in a "miscellaneous" section at the end of the combined foundry index for the particular geographic regions of such installations, as well as in an index of work by miscellaneous foundries.

A great deal of work on various tower bell instruments has been reported in ways that do not identify who performed it.  These installations, or phases of work, are listed in an index of work by unknown foundries.

Makers of steel bells

Makers of porcelain bells

Makers of tubular bells

There is no particular significance to the order in which foundries are listed above.
