Church authorities as you will know have a reputation for keeping meticulous records. I'm fairly confident that an approach to the relevant official at the Parish Church would prove helpful in establishing what is and what should be there.
Airtight frames as you say would come as an expensive method of preservation I'm sure. I should imagine if they were encased when they were first laid up it would be straightforward but to disturb colours that have been hanging for years is a definite no no in my book. Being a Bury ' lad ' I've know the Church all my life. Many years ago it was as black as the ace of spades from years of industrial pollution. It underwent a hugely expensive ' sandblasting ' clean up some by years ago and is still in good order.
