Whitechapel it is
At long last I've made some progress. In the end it seemed to me that if the bell was made at Whitechapel then they were the ones to make a frame for it. So I emailed the Foundry with photos of the bell and of the frames of the Brockenhurst Fire bell and my Lymington School bell. Whitechapel can make a similar frame for a reasonable price. On Friday 15th June the bell will be on the 8.33am train to London. I'll probably be worn out by the time I get to the Foundry - the bell's heavy! But I'll get some useful exercise.
