A bell similar to those at All Saints A framed notice in the church says:

The bells are in the key of F sharp. The back six were cast in 1804 by Thomas Mears of Whitechapel and the treble & second in 1895 by Charles Oliver of London.

The bells fell silent through disrepair in the early 1960s. In 1969 a generous legacy by Miss Dorothy Collett, a devoted member of the church, initiated the commencement of the restoration. Remaining funds were raised by the Friends of Carshalton Bells, a charity set up by the PCC & the Surrey Association of Church Bell Ringers. Much support was also received from the Rotary Club of Carshalton. Donations included £1000 from the Surrey Association belfry repair Fund & £100 given by Mr Leonard Reece, for many years Tower Captain, in memory of his wife.

The bells were retuned by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry who provided a new frame & fittings. The rehanging was carried out by members of the Surrey Association of Church Bell Ringers & the service of re-dedication took place on Saturday 22 December 1979.
