*Technical data:

   Chime-sized instrument (without any workable playing mechanism) of 10 bells
   Pitch of heaviest bell is D# in the middle octave
   Transposition is nil (concert pitch)
   Keyboard range:     D#F   /    D#G  3
   There is one added semitone
   The whole instrument was installed in 1918
     with bells made by Meneely/Troy
   Year of latest technical information source is 1992


The church Website opens with a drawing of the building, and a drawing of the bell tower appears on every page.  But there is no history of the parish and no information about the bells.  No longer present is a large photo of the tower; the mid-level room formerly occupied by the chimestand is now the rector's office. 

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Troy) bellfoundry.
