I think the L&Y faces were fitted to LNWR blocks when they were installed (as replacements by the LMS?) in ex-L&Y boxes.
I have seen photos of several such instruments with L&Y faces (mostly permissive) in L&Y boxes around the Bury area (on the east -west line, not the north-south!) and around Blackburn Station.

With thanks to John Hinson the drawings that Alan refers to are here -
For some reason I couldnt reply via the Signalling Forum so I'm trying
it this way.
Please find enclosed sketches of block shelves for Talacre and
Prestatyn. It does show additional functions with Nant Hall switched
I think that they show separate bells to Nant Hall, more observations may follow.
