St Gregory’s Church Bells

The 1553 inventory gives a Sanctus bell and five great bells.
Now there are eight bells. The Sanctus bell may have been melted down to make the additional bells
Seven of the bells, treble to the 7th cast by T Mears London 1821.
The tenor cast by Pack and Chapman London 1774.
The five pre-reformation bells most certainly have been recast to make the existing bells. Possibly twice maybe a Sudbury founder did a recasting only to be followed by T Mears in 1821
