The bishopric has existed since the union in 1980 of the see of Gibraltar (founded 1842) with the Jurisdiction of North and Central Europe of the see of London (headed by the suffraganBishop of Fulham). It was announced on 6 May 2014 that the next bishop, Rob Innes, is to be commissioned and consecrated on 20 July 2014.
(Any dates appearing in italics indicate de facto continuation of office. The start date of tenure below is the date of appointment or succession. Where known, the date of installation and ordination as bishop are listed in the notes together with the post held prior to appointment.)
The bishop also has one suffragan bishop, known as the Suffragan Bishop in Europe (currently David Hamid) and various honorary assistant bishops from other churches in communion with the Church of England.
