Rung to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of Fr Henry Fynes-Clinton, Rector of St Magnus for almost 40 years, who during his incumbancy had the old ring of 10 bells removed for safety in 1940, and who worked very hard to raise enough money to have them repaired and restored to the tower. Alas he died before he was able to do complete this, and the old bells were never restored. Fr Fynes was a major benefactor to the church as well as Rector, and he was remembered in a High Requiem Mass the day before where Rev'd Brooke Lunn preached, describing how Fr Fynes inspired him to go into the Priesthood.
