Sunday Mercury is a Sunday tabloid published in Birmingham, UK, and now owned by Trinity Mirror.

The first editor was John Turner Fearon (1869–1937), who left the Dublin-based Freeman's Journal to take up the position. David Brookes, who edited the Mercury between 2000 and 2008, returned to Birmingham in November 2009 and is now responsible for the Sunday Mercury as Editor-in-Chief along with the Birmingham Post and Birmingham Mail.
