Owen Thomas Lloyd Crossley (30 April 1860 – 3 March 1926) was the fourth Anglican Bishop of Auckland for a short period during the second decade of the 20th century. Educated at the Belfast Academy and Trinity College, Dublin he began his ecclesiastical career with a curacy at Sea Patrick County Down. Incumbencies at Egremont and Almondbury were followed by a period living in Australia, including six years as Vicar of All Saint's, St Kilda, and Archdeacon of Geelong. He was also Archbishop's Chaplain, a lecturer at St John's Theological College, and Chairman of Governors of the Geelong Grammar School. Not long after his appointment in 1905, he was elected to a vacancy on the Council of Trinity College (University of Melbourne). In 1911, he was elevated to the episcopate as Bishop of Auckland. Ill health prompted his return from New Zealand two years later and he served the remainder of his career as Rector of St Andrew's Major near Cardiff, retiring to Bramshott, Hampshire, in 1917. He died after being hit by a motor-van, soon after alighting from a bus in London.
