Trinity School



Welcome to the Trinity School War Memorial Website. We hope you find it interesting.
The aims of the site are to commemorate the Fallen of the Great War who had attended the Carlisle Grammar School for Boys;
to assist in the teaching of the Great War to current students of the school through individual case studies;
and to provide opportunities for research by current students and staff.
This is very much a work in progress and we would encourage you to contact us if you have any information you can add about any of the Old Boys commemorated here.
Please contact Ms Hodgson, Head of History, at if you have any information or queries. Thank you.
