 War Mem 7 Kingmoor 1

This small Church did not exist until the early 1930s.

But the young men who died in 1914-18 and are immortalised on this Memorial were very real indeed!

Until 1930 or thereabouts the small Episcopalian population of the district worshipped at the nearby St John's Church at Houghton.

With the growth of the village and the outward spread of the Carlisle city suburbs some families supported the idea of a small "daughter" chapel here at Kingstown.   

The small building they erected on this site still exists and is very tastefully incorporated into a larger and very busy church complex.

The names on the War Memorial within the Church are of the families of those members of the local population who had promoted the formation of their own place of worship here.   And as those families were originally of the Houghton congregation the names also appear on the War Memorial of that church. 

 

The inscription tells us “THIS TABLET IS ERECTED TO THE MEMORY OF THE MEN OF THE HAMLET OF KINGMOOR WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE SERVICE OF GOD AND COUNTRY IN THE GREAT WARS Of 1914 – 1918 AND 1939 – 1945”
