There are 47 Lord-Lieutenants in England, five of whom are in the North West. Like other counties, Lancashire has one Lord-Lieutenant.

Information on the number of serving Deputy Lieutenants is not held centrally: the number of Deputy Lieutenants in a Lieutenancy at any time is a matter for the Lord-Lieutenant, subject to limits calculated on the basis of population size. Lieutenancy websites may hold relevant information about current Deputy Lieutenants.
