Sydney Gedge (16 October 1829 – 6 April 1923) was a Conservative Party politician and prominent lay member of the Church of England.

Born in Norfolk, he was the eldest son of the Rev. Sydney Gedge, and was educated in Birmingham and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.[1] He graduated in 1854.[2]

He became a solicitor, and senior partner in Gedge, Fisher & Gedge. The company became solicitors to the London School Board in 1870, and Gedge was solicitor to the board for twenty years.[1][2]

He was a member of parliament from 1886–92 and 1895-1900.

In November 1900 he was elected to the London School Board as one of the representatives of Westminster. The board was abolished in 1904.[3] He was defeated when he was a candidate for the London County Council in 1901.[4]

He died at his home in Mitcham, Surrey in 1923, aged 93.[2]
