Lincoln Cathedral chapel dedicated to the emergency services and NHS

In the first of its kind in the country, a chapel within Lincoln Cathedral has been dedicated for members of the emergency services and the NHS.

This unique space is one of a kind and offers a place where family and friends can gather, reflect and pause with quiet contemplation on the lives of those who have served with Ambulance, Police, Fire and Rescue, and the National Health Service.

The chapel itself includes four commissioned gilded panels by the Cathedral Illuminator displaying each service’s crest, which are placed in the four arches of the chapel, and a beautiful hand embroidered altar cloth by the Cathedral Embroiders’ Guild. A book of remembrance has also been hand crafted to reflect the sacrifice made by members of the four services.

Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable Chris Haward said: “It is a great privilege to have the chapel dedicated for Emergency Service personnel who have given their lives to service. We are especially grateful to Lincoln Cathedral for setting this space aside within such a majestic and beautiful building.

“For the families and friends who have lost someone, it will mean a lot to be able to attend the chapel for those moments of quiet pause and reflection. It is a fitting tribute and an honour to be here with all our colleagues and friends across the emergency services.”
