HM Queen Elizabeth's Funeral Ringing at Haughton

At 10 am Haughton Church bell ringers started their performance of a Fully Muffled Quarter Peal for HM Queen Elizabeth's funeral.  1296 changes of Plain Hunt Singles was rung with 246 behind.  This gave us the change of  Kings at every half lead and Queens at every full lead end.  216 extents was called to achieve 1296 changes.  1260 changes are only required for a quarter peal, but we felt a quarter of 1296  was very much appropriate, as the 96 changes represented the age of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

The Bell Ringers were:
1. Karen Powell
2. Trevor Stacey
3. Mervyn Lock
4. Rosemarie Harris
5. Trevor Lock (C)
6. Jocelyne Lock

The Ringers were:

1. Karen Powell
2. Mervyn Lock
3. William Hall
4. Rosemarie Harris
5. Trevor Stacey
6. Trevor Lock (C)
