The Archdeacon of Hampstead is a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Church of England Diocese of London, named after, and based in and around, the Hampstead area of London. He or she is the priest responsible for the Archdeaconry of Hampstead.



The archdeaconry was created by Order in Council on 23 July 1912 from the ancient archdeaconry of Middlesex. Part of the archdeaconry was split off to create the Charing Cross archdeaconry before 1989. The Hampstead archdeaconry is geographically equivalent to the episcopal area overseen by the area Bishop of Edmonton.

Miller ceased to be Archdeacon of Hampstead upon his appointment to St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe on 31 July 2015; he is to become Archdeacon of London from January 2016.
