Her Majesty’s Commission of Lieutenancy for the City of London

The u/m are members of the Society of Lieutenants, who collectively fulfil a role in the City of London akin to the Lord Lieutenant of a county. They do so under the chairmanship of the Lord Mayor.

All past lord mayors are appointed to the Commission for the duration of their time as aldermen (ie usually until their 70th birthday), along with the current LM and his/her likely successor. The other appointees (e.g. Recorder, Common Sergeant, Bank Governor, Police Commissioner, RFCA chairman etc) relinquish their lieutenancy on leaving their office.

By custom, each outgoing LM nominates one suitable new lieutenant (shown as “nominee” in the list below), and they serve for life. Occasionally, a retiring alderman is so nominated (eg Martin and Woolf below).
