The office of High Sheriff of Hereford and Worcester came into existence with the county of Hereford and Worcester on 1 April 1974 under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972. The office subsumed that of the much older offices of Sheriff of Herefordshire and Sheriff of Worcestershire. The office was abolished in 1998 and the functions of the High Sheriff of Hereford and Worcester returned to the offices of the Sheriff of Herefordshire and Sheriff of Worcestershire both of which were renamed High Sheriff. During its existence the office of High Sheriff of Hereford and Worcester remaigned the Sovereign's representative in the County for all matters relating to the Judiciary and the maintenance of law and order. The High Sheriff changed every March.
