Edward Grey (25 March 1782 – 1837) was an Anglican bishop who served in the Church of England as the Bishop of Hereford from 1832 to 1837.[1]

He was nominated to become Bishop of Hereford by George IV on 4 May 1832 and consecrated as a bishop on 20 May 1832. He died in office in 1837 — on 24 June[2] or 27 June[1] or 24 July.[3] He was a younger son of Charles Grey, 1st Earl Grey; he was therefore entitled, from 1801 onwards, to the style The Honourable.[3]
