This is a list of people who have held the office of mayor of Lewisham. The office was originally created in 1900 when the Metropolitan Borough of Lewisham was formed by the London Government Act 1899. The Metropolitan Borough was absorbed into the larger London Borough of Lewisham in 1965, and the office of Mayor continued for the new authority. In 2002 a directly-elected Mayor of Lewisham was introduced, and the existing office of mayor, whose duties included chairing council meetings and representing the borough in a ceremonial capacity, was renamed "Chair of the Council".
