HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey

Appointed as Lord-Lieutenant in 2015, Michael More-Molyneux lends his support to business, charities, the voluntary sector and faith groups across Surrey.

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey Michael More-Molyneux has lived in the county of Surrey all his life. Loseley Park has been the residence of the More-Molyneux family for over five centuries.

Michael and his wife Sarah moved out of Loseley House in 2017, when their eldest son Alexander and his wife Sophia took over the Elizabethan manor house and the running of the estate.

Over the years Michael More-Molyneux has built links with many organisations and businesses in Surrey. Since his appointment as Lord-Lieutenant in 2015 he has become involved with an increasing number of charities and many good causes across the county. In 2021, he considers this a very important part of his role.

I am committed to encouraging and supporting the voluntary, charitable and faith sectors, benevolent organisations and the industrial, business and social life of our county. The support that I continue to receive from communities and individuals across Surrey has been inspirational and energising and I relish developing my role.
