Aldermen


The Court of Aldermen has 25 members, one representing each ward of the City of London, together with the Recorder of London. They are elected by the registered voters within the ward, and stand for re-election at least every six years. They retire at 70 years of age. The historic requirement that aldermen sit as magistrates in the City of London was dropped in 2013, but most of those listed below still do.

The list is in order of the year in which they have served as Lord Mayor, and thereafter in the order of their first election as an alderman. The link from their surname should take you to their entry at the City of London website.
