The Dutch Wikipedia article about the building has a photo of it, and mentions the carillon.  Follow the link to the Wikimedia Commons category for the building to find more current and historical photos.

The Dutch religious wiki page about the building has many photos but does not mention any bells.  It does mention a 1998 fire that destroyed the wooden structure of the spire; perhaps that also destroyed any previous bells.

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