Monuments and Memorials

Carlisle and its surrounding district has been central in a long and at times troubled history, as a consequence we have so many monuments and memorials that it would be too much to list them all on a web page. So we have provided a downloadable document:

Download your Monuments and Memorials PDF Guide here

The guide lists monuments and war memorials located with the Carlisle City Council geographical area. It is a “work in progress” and will be added to as further information becomes available. 

We hope to provide up-to-date information on the location of the monuments and their purpose. In the document you will find an image of the monument, a brief description, comments on the purpose, the event or person being commemorated, the condition and responsibility for maintenance or ownership.

Further information, corrections to the existing monument information and monuments to add to the schedule would be welcomed

Carlisle Elections 2019

On the build-up to the May elections, Carlisle City Council’s Electoral Services team is advising voters of some changes to their ballot paper.

Voters will notice that the ballot paper they receive for the Carlisle City Council elections on Thursday 2 May will be longer and will contain more names than in recent years.

Voters can select up to three candidates from any of the candidates in the list.

The three candidates that receive the most votes will be elected to represent the ward.

If voters choose more than three candidates on their ballot paper, their vote will be ‘spoilt’ and will not be counted.

Voters are advised to read your ballot paper carefully and follow the instructions.

Following a boundary review, all current Carlisle City Council wards will change at this May’s election. The Boundary Commission’s final recommendation was that Carlisle should be represented by 39 city councillors in the future: thirteen fewer than the current arrangement. The recommendations also proposed that those councillors should represent 13 three-councillor wards.

Voters will be voting at the same time as everyone else in the district, as all 39 seats are up for election.

Elections will be held in the following 13 wards on Thursday 2 May: Belah & Kingmoor; Botcherby & Harraby North; Brampton & Fellside; Cathedral & Castle; Currock & Upperby; Dalston & Burgh; Denton Holme & Morton South; Harraby South & Parklands; Longtown & the Border; Newtown & Morton North; Sandsfield & Morton West; Stanwix & Houghton; and Wetheral & Corby.

Polling stations will open at 7am and close at 10pm on Thursday, 2 May.

The count will take place during the day on Friday, 3 May and results will be posted on
