Cyril Henry Golding-Bird (18 September 1876–9 April 1955) was an Anglican bishop in the early decades of the 20th century.

He was born on 18 September 1876 and educated at Merchant Taylors' and Lincoln College, Oxford.[2] Ordained in 1897[3] he was initially a curate at All Saint’s Margaret Street and then a missionary priest in South Africa.[citation needed]

After time as vicar of St Barnabas', Dover, he began a long period of service overseas: first as dean of the Falkland Islands; then a similar post in Newcastle, New South Wales following which he was ordained to the episcopate as Bishop of Kalgoorlie.

Translated to Mauritius in 1919, he returned to the England eleven years later to become an assistant bishop in the Diocese of Guildford[4] and as Archdeacon of Dorking, then of Surrey, until his final resignation in 1949, before his death on 9 April 1955.[5]
