Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the information you want in our service pages, you may be able to find it on this main FAQ page.
After looking at the statistics of how users browse our site we have now focused on the most used services as priority, many hundreds of information pages on our site that were accessed rarely or sometimes not at all have now been removed to de-clutter and make our site easier to use.

However we still accept that some information is desirable to help our users better understand aspects of how Carlisle City Council services work, so we provide FAQ lists on most our section landing pages.
All FAQs including any FAQ that does not fit in any of our our site sections are accessible here in the master FAQ page.

Memorial Safety

Responsibility for the safety of a memorial rests upon three parties:

  • The purchaser/owner of the memorial.
  • The mason/erector of the memorial.
  • The land owner/s.

The condition and inherent safety of a memorial during its entire lifespan are the responsibilities of the purchaser or his/her heirs. It is a good idea to look at the memorial to assess what risk it carries:

  • How tall is it?
  • How big is the base?
  • How likely is it to fall? (some shapes are less likely than others)
  • If it fell, what damage could it do (to a child for example)?

Our cemetery staff are always willing to advise, or you could consult your local stonemason or get in touch with the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) at::
