CARLILE, Miss   (fl. 1890s) – lecturer

‘The Church's Holy War’ in Church Army gazette

“C.A. nurses in Birmingham: An interesting Meeting was held April 23rd, in the Infant School, on the occasion of a visit from Miss Carlile, who gave an account of the work done by the Church Army, illustrated by Magic Lantern views. Miss Prentice also added a few words, and short speeches were given by Mrs. Shingler, from the Bristol Road Church Army Labour Home, Birmingham, Nurse Westwood from St. Asaph's, Birmingham, Nurse Lambe from St. Lawrence, Birmingham, and Nurse Duffell of St. Mark's, Birmingham. There was a good and appreciative audience, the room being well filled. Many members of St. Mark's Mothers' Meeting were present, some parish workers, and friends from other parishes. A Church Army Nurse has been located in St. Mark's parish now for the past two-and-a-half years, and although the parish is in many ways a difficult one to work, a quiet and growing work has been going on, of which the meeting by its quiet, earnest, spiritual tone was sufficient evidence. The Vicar presided, and opened and closed the meeting by a few remarks and prayers. A collection was made, producing 12s. 4d. for the Mission Nurse's Fund. ”
