Bishop of willesden

The Bishop of Willesden is an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of London, in the Province of Canterbury, England.[1] The title takes its name after Willesden, an area of the London Borough of Brent.

The post was created in 1911, and was the fourth suffragan bishopric in the diocese. The new bishop was given oversight of four rural deaneries: Hampstead, Hornsey, St Pancras and Willesden, previously the responsibility of the Bishop of Islington.[2][3]

The bishop now has responsibility for the Willesden Episcopal Area, comprising four deaneries: Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon.[4]
