Thomas Pope (22 January 1835 – 17 February 1943) was a British centenarian who was the oldest known living person in the United Kingdom at the time of his death.
Thomas Pope was born in the United Kingdom on 22 January 1835. A Freeman of the City of Liverpool, he never married.
Pope was the oldest living person in the United Kingdom from 2 October 1940 (following the death of 108-year-old Mary Davey of Brighton) until his own death nearly two and a half years later. It is currently unknown when he became the oldest man in the country.
On his 107th birthday, Pope was reported to be in good health and able to read without glasses. He died on 17 February 1943 at the age of 108 years, 26 days. At the time of his death, he was the oldest British man ever (surpassing the age of William Walker the year before). His successor as the oldest man (and person) in the United Kingdom was John Christian Francklow (1835–1944), who surpassed Pope's age only four months later.
