St George's (Soldiers') Chapel
In 1912, this chapel was restored and re-dedicated to St George and from then on, all military memorials and regimental colours held by the Cathedral for safe keeping were collected here and the chapel became known colloquially as the Soldiers' Chapel.

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.
