Frederic Sumpter Guy Warman (5 November 1872 – 12 February 1953) was an Anglican bishop who held three separate episcopal appointments between 1919 and 1947.[1]

He was educated at Merchant Taylors'[2] and Pembroke College, Oxford [3] and ordained priest in 1896.[4] After a Curacy at Leyton (1895–99) and Hastings (1899–1901), he was Vice Principal of St Aidan's College, Birkenhead. He was Vicar of Birkenhead from 1902 to 1907; Principal of St Aidan's College, Birkenhead from 1907 to 1916 and Vicar of Bradford from 1916 to 1919. He was elevated to the Episcopate in 1919.[5] After four years in Cornwall as Bishop of Truro[6] he was translated to Chelmsford in 1923 and six years later to Manchester.[7]

From 1910 to 1914 he was editor of The Churchman jointly with Dr Dawson Dawson-Walker, professor of Biblical Exegesis at Durham University. [8]

He retired in 1947[9] and died six years later. He had married Gertrude, the daughter of surveyor Norwood Earle, and had two sons. His son, Francis Frederic Guy, was later Archdeacon of Aston in his Warman's former diocese.
