This a list of people who have held the office of mayor of the municipal borough, county borough or London Borough of Croydon.[1]

Municipal borough 1883-1889Edit

The office of Mayor of Croydon was created in 1883 when the town was incorporated as a municipal borough.

County borough 1889-1965Edit

The Local Government Act 1888, which came into effect on 1 April 1889, created elected county councils throughout England and Wales. Where existing boroughs had a poulation in excess of 50,000 at the census of 1881 they were to be given the new status of "county borough", exercising the powers of both a borough and county council. With an 1881 population of 79,615, Croydon became a county borough outside the jurisdiction of Surrey County Council.
