Personal details
Died c. 909

Wigmund was a medieval Bishop of Dorchester.

Wigmund was consecrated circa 901 and died circa 904.[1]

There is some confusion between Wigmund and another bishop, Wilferth. The surviving charters do not explicitly specify which was bishop of where. There is therefore also a possibility that it was Wilferth who was bishop of Dorchester, and Wigmund bishop of Lichfield.
