Jeremy Wilding was educated at Hereford Cathedral School. He then read Law at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was a choral scholar in the college’s famous choir, before entering private practice. He qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and has over 30 years’ experience.

  • Ecclesiastical Law
  • Contentious Probate/Wills/Trust cases
  • Contract claims
  • Land/Property disputes (including the Court of Appeal)
  • Business/Partnership litigation
  • Landlord and Tenant law and procedure
  • Company and Partnership law

He is due to take up the additional position of Hereford Diocesan Registrar in the summer of 2020. The Diocesan Registrar is the Bishop of Hereford’s legal adviser as well as registrar of the diocesan synod – the governing council of the diocese. The role also involves giving legal advice on any decisions or issues including works to churches and churchyards across the diocese.  He will also be responsible for providing advice to parishes and church officers on the variety of legal matters which arise from time to time in parish life-supporting hundreds of churchwardens, clergy and PCC members about their various roles and duties.

In 2016 he was awarded an MBE by Her Majesty The Queen.
