The Regimental Chapel

Although the Regimental Chapel in the nave of the Cathedral was only formally established in 1949, that area of the west end of the Cathedral has long had an increasing assembly of war memorial and personal military memorials, dating back to 1856; and regimental colours dating back to 1745. They reflect the transition of the local regiment from the 34th Regiment of Foot to the Border Regiment, the King’s Own Regiment; and the present Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment. Memorial books of the First and Second World Wars onwards are displayed, from which names are formally read out each Friday.
