Carlisle Cathedral: Samuel Waldegrave


Located in the presbytery aisle in Carlisle Cathedral is the monument to Samuel Waldegrave. Born in 1817, Samuel became Bishop of Carlisle in 1860 – a post which he held until his death in 1869. The monument was raised from public subscription in 1872 and details the sculpted figure of the bishop wearing a robe and holding a bible in his left hand.
