Edward Grey (25 March 1782–24 July 1837) was an Anglican clergyman who served in the Church of England as the Bishop of Hereford from 1832 to 1837.[1]

He was nominated bishop of the diocese of Hereford by King George IV on 4 May 1832 and consecrated on 20 May 1832.[1]

He died in office on 27 June 1837.[1] He was the son of Charles Grey, 1st Earl Grey; he was therefore entitled, from 1801 onwards, to the style The Hon.[2]
