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

Leave the effort of getting rid of your tree to Hospice at Home!

Following the success of last year, Hospice at Home is once again organising the festive fundraising initiative that not only recycles trees after the festive season but also hopes to raise vital funds for this local charity. 

They are collecting trees from the following postcodes on Monday 7 January 2019:

 CA1, CA2, CA3, CA4 8, CA5 6, CA5 7, CA6 4, CA6 5, CA7 4, CA7 9, CA8 9, CA8 1, CA10 2, CA11 7, CA11 8, CA11 9, CA11 0, CA12. 

The process is simple. Supporters book their tree collection via the event website - and make a donation of their choice to Hospice at Home.

On Monday 7 January the charity team and volunteers will collect the trees and take them to be recycled locally. No trips to the tip or needles in your car - just leave the trees in your front garden or outside your property and Hospice at Home will do the rest! 

Register your tree for collection by Thursday 3 January 2019 at

The Charity hope this initiative will raise great funds to enable their Clinical Team to continue to provide a vital service in the North and East of Cumbria.
