This is a list of people who have held the office of Mayor of Bexley.

There have been two mayoralties: the first was that of the Municipal Borough of Bexley, Kent. This was created when the existing Bexley Urban District was granted a charter of incorporation in 1937.[1] The office was abolished in 1965 when the area was included in the larger London Borough of Bexley in 1965. A new mayoralty for the London Borough (which also replaced the office of Mayor of Erith) came into existence on 1 April 1965.[2]
