Anglican refers to the Church of England and member churches of the Anglican Communion globally. This category reflects historical events. All religious occupations in England prior to the 1534 Act of Supremacy and in Scotland prior to the 1560 Act were Catholic and should be categorized as such.

The occupation of Dean varies among member churches of the Anglican Communion. In some member churches, the most senior priest in the diocese after the bishop is given the title of Dean instead of archdeacon. In other member churches, the parishes of a diocese are subdivided into groups called deaneries for administrative purposes with each deanery headed by a Dean. See Wikipedia: Anglican ministry.

Deans should be placed in categories for deans of their member church of the communion. Subcategories for specific deaneries may be created if desired.
