News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

It is probably squirreled away in some storage facility of the Royal Navy, having been removed when the ship was decommissioned.
It may even be in a council building somewhere as is the Bell of the last HMS Chatham on show ar St Georges Centre, Medway.
Heres a bit about the replica bell.

Hms cavalier ships bell

Good evening

I am trying to figure out what happened to the original ships` bell of HMS Cavalier and no one at the dockyard seems to know. So if any one here can help answer this question I would be most grateful.

Many thanks

Dockyard guy
