Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire

This is a list of people who have served as Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire. Before the English Civil War, the lieutenancy of Herefordshire was always held by the Lord Lieutenant of Wales, but after the Restoration, its lieutenants were appointed separately. Since 1714, all the Lord Lieutenants have also been Custos Rotulorum of Herefordshire.

On 31 March 1974 most of Worcestershire merged with Herefordshire to form the new county of Hereford and Worcester (see Lord Lieutenant of Hereford and Worcester). After the abolition of Hereford and Worcester in 1998 after only 24 years, the two counties again became two separate administrative counties as well as two separate lieutenancy areas.
