06 March 2014

Caroline Mockford has been appointed as Diocesan Registrar and Legal Secretary to the Archbishop of York.

The Archbishop of York has appointed Lincoln's Diocesan Registrar, as Diocesan Registrar and Legal Secretary.

Caroline Mockford is to take up the role in September 2014. 

She said: "I'm looking forward to joining the Diocese of York as Diocesan Registrar and Legal Secretary to the Archbishop, but it will be a great wrench to leave my colleagues in Lincoln.

"It's been a pleasure and an honour to support the mission and ministry of the Diocese of Lincoln for the last six years. I'm looking forward to the challenges in York, and meeting clergy and churchwardens across the Diocese."

The Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, Bishop of Lincoln, said he was delighted for Caroline: "This is a hugely prestigious opportunity for Caroline, which sees her considerable knowledge and ability recognised in a demanding and important role.

"It has been my privilege to work with Caroline since I became Bishop of Lincoln, and her unstinting energy and commitment will be sad losses to our Diocese."

Caroline will be joining the Registry Team at Lupton Fawcett Denison Till in York.
