History

Abbots & Deans

List of Abbots of the monastery and Deans of the Collegiate Church.

Abbots

The monastery was dissolved in January 1540, then was restored by Mary I.

Bishop of Westminster

Deans

Notes

Neile, Dolben, Sprat, Atterbury, Bradford, Wilcocks, Pearce, Thomas and Horsley were also Bishops of Rochester at the same time as they were Dean. As Rochester was an impoverished diocese holding it alongside the Deanery of Westminster enabled it to have an income and a London residence.

I feel very privileged to work here. I take so much pride in working for a beautiful place like the Abbey, it’s unique.
