About The Westminster Abbey Company of Ringers

The ten bells at Westminster Abbey are rung for major church festivals, saints' days, Royal and Abbey anniversaries, civic events and for special services.

The Westminster Abbey Company of Ringers was formed in 1921 at the instigation of Dean Ryle, following the spirit of the Brethren of the Guild of Westminster established in 1255. The Guild members were charged with the duty of ringing the bells for an annual fee of one hundred shillings.

The Company of Ringers continues to be responsible, as a voluntary group, for ringing the Abbey's bells as required by the Dean and Chapter. The Company comprises principal, supernumerary and honorary members all of whom are experienced bell ringers.

This site provides members with access to attendance records and other administrative items and requires a log in.

Further information on the bells and ringing at Westminster Abbey can be found at the Westminster Abbey History Page.
