Geoffrey Allen (bishop)

Geoffrey Francis Allen[1] (25 August 1902–8 November 1982) was the third Bishop of Derby.[2]

Allen was educated at Dulwich College[3] and University College, Oxford, and after training at Ripon Hall was ordained in 1927.[4] Following a brief curacy at St Saviour’s, Liverpool, he was Chaplain of his old theological college, a Fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford, Lecturer at Union Theological College, Canton, the Deputy Provost of Birmingham Cathedral and then Archdeacon of Birmingham, 1944–47.

He was elevated to the Episcopate as Bishop of Egypt in 1947. Returning to England in 1952, he became Principal of Ripon Hall before his appointment in 1959 to the see of Derby,[5] where he served until 1969.
