About
Remembering past sacrifice to inspire future generations. Many brave and selfless RNLI volunteers are remembered proudly in their local communities. However, the RNLI memorial sculpture in Poole is the only place where each and every one of them is named together. The RNLI hopes that future generations of lifeboat crew, lifeguards, supporters and fundraisers will find it a source of inspiration. Ultimately, the memorial reminds us all that there are still people who volunteer to carry out selfless acts of heroism to help others - we will always remember their sacrifice.

At the entrance to the RNLI offices in West quay Road, Poole, the sculpture initially takes a bit of noticing, and then some interpreting. Depicting in skeleton form a person being dragged from the sea. Perhaps more poignantly is the plinth that the sculpture rest on, giving the names of the Lifeboat crew s ( all volunteers) who gave their lives at sea, to save others

This year marks tge 40th Anniversary of The Penlee Lifeboat disaster, where the entire crew from The Solomon Browne were lost during an attempted rescue off Lamorna Cove. We live in Penzance and the crew came from Mousehole nearby, so we remember it well. It was sad to see the names engraved on the memorial but humbling to see they were only a few of so many.

Makes its point well. Dramatic and minimalist design. The whole RNLI complex is tasteful - but surrounded by a huge ugly ASDA!

This memorial is dedicated to the brave men and women of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, who saves lives at sea around the coasts of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The sculpture depicts a rescue at sea, a stylised rescuer on a boat is reaching out a hand to a man overboard. The scene just says it all about what the RNLI do. I for one appreciate the brave rescuers.

Whilst driving past this many times I took the opportunity to stop and reflect on this amazing sculpture outside the RNLI college. It depicts a person in a boat saving another from the water, symbolises the history and future of the RNLI in its most basic and humanitarian form.

If you spot this, then you are by the RNLI college. If it is open, then the restaurant and bar are worth frequenting. If you want a hotel room, try this place, the money you pay goes to a good cause

This is on the main road adjacent to one the large RNLI institutions in the area. It's a moving tribute to the volunteers over the years who have given their lives to save others.
