Has anyone got any pictures of the bell tower ringers plaques in the Parish Church please.

My Great Grandfather and his brother were ringers in the 1800s and hold the record for the years served ringing. At least thats what I was told.

His Name was Bentham.

Ta!
Phil

Just thought, he was my Great/Great Grandfather.

My great grandfather Richard Forshaw and his brother Daniel, both master carpenters, where involved with bell riinging at St James, they carved the boat mirror (see Micks St James photos). On Richards death in 1926 one of the floral tributes was from StJames Bellringers. The family lived in the canal cottages in front of Trencherfield Mill.
