Herbert Mortime Luckock was made a Canon of Ely Cathedral in 1875, and principal of Ely Theological College. In 1892 he was appointed the Dean of Lichfield Cathedral until his death in 1909.

In his book Studies in the History of the Book of Common Prayer, his purpose is to trace the movements and influences of which it was the product, down through the Anglican Reform, the Puritan Innovations, the Elizabethan Reaction, and the Caroline Settlement. The four chapters have little to do with the contents of the Prayer Book, but three of the five appendices respectively compare the Gallican Liturgy with the Sarum Missal, contain the "Order of the Communion" drawn up in 1548, and point out the changes introduced into the Prayer Book in 1662.
