The Dean of Liverpool is based in Liverpool and is head of the chapter of Liverpool Cathedral.

The deanery is currently vacant, following the confirmation of the election of the seventh dean Pete Wilcox as Bishop of Sheffield on 5 June 2017.

A former dean, Edward Patey, said that being Dean of Liverpool was "the best job in the Church of England".[1]
