Gemert was an independent town before 1997; now it is part of Gemert-Bakel.  The Dutch Wikipedia article about the village has a photo of the Ridderplein, in which the gemeentehuis and its bell-filled cupola can be seen at right.  A photo of the gemeentehuis from a different perspective accompanies a paragraph about the building.

The city Website (in Dutch) has contact information, but says nothing about the building or the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
