The monument is a six-sided obelisk with a marble plaque on each side of the column.  It is located in the war graves area of Carlisle Cemetery.   The names of the Fallen inscribed thereon are to be found all around this historic burial ground, and in the other two local authority cemeteries at Upperby and Stanwix.   The names also appear on their local War Memorial.  

Most died in local hospitals or in their own homes as a result of wounds received in battle, or from physical and mental illness contracted from the privations of their service, having suffered a long and painful journey back to loved ones.   

The Inscription:-

The Memorial to the Officers and Men of the Navy and Army who are buried in the Carlisle City, Upperby, and Stanwix Cemeteries.

On the base is the Carlisle City Coat of Arms  "Be Just and Fear Not".  And on the cornice - "Liberty and  Freedom".
