Warners cast some notable bells including the clock chime at the Houses of Parliament at their foundry in Cripplegate. The larger Big Ben was cast at Norton, near Stockton-on-Tees but later had to be re-cast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. In 1913, Warners cast the ring of 12 bells at Chelmsford Cathedral, the heaviest weighing 34cwt and sounding note C.
They made bells for churches all around the world. In the western hemisphere, the bell at All Saints Chapel of Ease in the parish of Saint Peter, Barbados was also made by this foundry. A notable peal of bells from this foundry is located in Sacred Heart Basilica, Timaru.
The first set of bells in Wellington, New Zealand, at St Peter's Anglican Church, were made by John Warner & Sons.
