The European Mission was created as an administrative unit over the missions of Europe. The president of the mission also served as president of the British Mission until 1 January 1929, when the European Mission president was no longer directly responsible for the British Mission.
Note: the missionary registers often list calls as simply "Europe" or "European Mission," but these individuals were not called to the administrative mission and have been listed under the appropriate missions in which they labored. Presidents of the European Mission prior to the separation in 1929 are listed on the British Mission page as presidents of that mission.

The British Mission was separated from the direct management of the European Mission president at the beginning of 1929. August William Lund was the first solely British Mission president and John A. Widtsoe continued to serve as European Mission president.

Due to the double duty of the European Mission president, the mission headquarters coincided with the British Mission headquarters. The British Mission headquarters were moved and the European Mission maintained its offices at Durham House, 295 Edge Lane, Liverpool.
