This is a list of the heads of government of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate (1893–1975) and the dependent Solomon Islands (1975–1978).

Resident Commissioners of the Solomon Islands Protectorate (1896–1953)[edit]

The Resident Commissioners were subordinate to the High Commissioner for the Western Pacific who was, until 3 July 1952, the Governor of Fiji.

Governors of the Solomon Islands (1953–1978)[edit]

From 3 July 1952, Fiji (and Tonga) separated from the British Western Pacific Territories. A separate High Commissioner for the Western Pacific was appointed. The High Commissioner remained temporarily based in Fiji, but moved to Honiara, British Solomon Islands, at the end of 1952, and from 1 January 1953, the role was combined with that of the Governor of the Solomon Islands.
