Cyril Wratten's Bell

Cyril Wratten became a member of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers in 1960 and was Secretary for 22 years. He also served on four other committees and was made a Life Member in 1986. In the early 1980s he was involved in the formation of Ringing World Ltd as a limited company and in 1983 became the first Company Secretary.During the 1960s Cyril arranged a number of ringing tours and he was a founder member of the East meets West peal tour on which he was a regular for 25 years. He rang a total of 1,090 peals and he died in 2004.Cyril's home tower was St Mary's Cheltenham. In 2013 the church was raised to Minster status. Those who have rung on the bells can attest to the fact that they sound tonally indifferent and the back bells are difficult to ring. The ringers have made a decision to replace the current 12 with a brand new ring of 13 bells.

We do hope you will agree that this Giant of the Bell Ringing Exercise deserves a permanent memorial.
