St Michael's (Airmen's) Chapel at Lincoln Cathedral
St Michael's (Airmen's) Chapel at Lincoln Cathedral
The northern chapel of the Great Transept was completed about 1210 and dedicated to St Michael. At the Reformation, all the chantries were suppressed and the three chapels fell into disuse until they were reordered and revived in the late 19th century.

The Airmen's Chapel as we see it today, is mainly from the planning and refurbishment after the Second World War. The memorials commemorate all the personnel who lost their lives.

Lincoln Cathedral Service Chapels

The Service Chapels are for remembering soldiers (St George's Chapel), sailors (St Andrew's Chapel) and Airmen (St Michael's Chapel who have died in wars across the globe and over the centuries.

After the First World War, a need was expressed for an All Services Chapel in the Cathedral was expressed and the three chapels in the North Transept were designated for this purpose, becoming a combined chapel with separate Service altars.
