Not to be confused with now defunct title, relating to the Catholic Diocese of Beverley

The Bishop of Beverley is a Church of England suffragan bishop and takes its name after the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.[1]

The suffragran bishop was originally to assist the Archbishop of York in overseeing the Diocese of York, but after 1923 the position fell into abeyance. The title was revived in 1994 as a Provincial Episcopal Visitor for the whole of the Province of York and has responsibility to visit parishes throughout the province who cannot in good conscience accept the ministry of bishops who have participated in the ordination of women.
