Thomas William Cook was the Anglican Bishop of Lewes for a brief period in the second quarter of the 20th century.

Born at Wellingborough and educated at Lancing College and Hertford College, Oxford, he was ordained in 1890. His ministry began with a curacy at Warrington after which he was appointed Assistant Principal of the Chester Diocesan Training College. He then began a long period within the Diocese of Chichester. From 1895 until 1911, he was Second Master and Chaplain at his old school and then successively Vicar, Rural Dean and Archdeacon of Hastings before being elevated to the Episcopate. A small brass memorial to him lies in the north aisle of Chichester Cathedral.
