Henry Callow CBE was a former Second Deemster in the Isle of Man.

He began his career as a Manx advocate and was then appointed High Bailiff in 1969. After 19 years in the post, he was made Second Deemster until retiring in 1993. In 1994, he was awarded the CBE. He was the Provincial Grand Master of the Isle of Man Freemasons from 1983 to 1994.

He was the last judge anywhere in the British Isles to pass a sentence of death (upon Anthony Teare in 1992), although the sentence was commuted to one of life imprisonment. Capital punishment in the Isle of Man was formally abolished by Tynwald in 1993.[1]

Henry Callow died on 14 April 2006.
