The Dean of Birmingham is the senior member of clergy responsible for St. Philip's Cathedral in Birmingham, England. Before 2000 the post was designated provost, which was the equivalent of a dean but used in the case of pro-cathedrals, such as Birmingham, which had originally been built as parish churches.
