David John Farmbrough (4 May 1929 – 9 March 2013)[1] was Bishop of Bedford from 1981 to 1993.[2]

Farmbrough was educated at Bedford School and Lincoln College, Oxford before embarking on an ecclesiastical career with a curacy at Bishop's Hatfield, after which he was priest in charge of St John’s Church in the same parish.[3]

Following this he was Vicar of Bishop's Stortford. Later he became Rural Dean of the area and then (his final appointment before ordination to the episcopate[4]) Archdeacon of St Albans (1974–1981). In retirement he served the Diocese of St Albans as an assistant bishop.
