The Bishop of Islington was an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of London, in the Province of Canterbury, England.[1][2]

The title took its name after Islington, an inner-city district of London, and the only suffragan bishop, who lived at Clapton Common,[3] was simultaneously Rector of St Andrew Undershaft.[4] Since 1923, the title has remained in abeyance.[1]
