Ringers in History and history of ringers


Our aim is to make biographic and related information about ringers easily accessible to historians and to interested ringers. We do this mainly by acquiring information about the lives and achievements of ringers who contributed to the Exercise and publishing Biographic records on the website.

The sub-groups within the workgroup have constructed, researched and maintained several lists over the years. These have eached focussed on specific groups of ringers.

  • Biographies - an ongoing project to publish accounts of the lives of Central Council members
  • Obituaries - an index of all obituaries of ringers published in ringing papers.
  • Prolific Peal Ringers - articles written by Bill Butler.
  • Rolls of Honour - started after the end of WW1, The Central Council Rolls of Honour commemorate those ringers who fell in the Great War 1914 – 1918 and 1939-1945 War.

These pages explore the information held within these resources, their relationships and methods of display and analysis.
