Lynch was resident medical superintendent of the Cholera Hospital in Swan Street, Manchester, in 1832. He played a part in the controversy of a headless body which resulted in the cholera riot. The head had been removed by Dr Oldham and was found in a house about a mile away. It was taken to the town hall and Mr Lynch reattached the head to the trunk of the body.
