Living men aged 106+

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of men, and that ranks are only given for men known to be aged over 106. It is possible that there are living men older than those listed below, and it is also possible that the oldest living man in the UK is not publicly identified at this stage. We ask that you get in touch with us if you know of any men aged over 106.

We estimate that there are currently around 30 living men in the UK aged over 106. There are many unidentified centenarians who are not listed because they are not yet known to us by name.

Anyone with an equal birthdate should be considered an equal rank, irrespective of the order in which they are listed below.
