Revising my estimation - the piece linked below seems to indicate Matt probably was ballpark 5'2" (maybe less) and none the worse for it, great singer and wonderful stage presence. Gone way too soon.

Great to see Matt listed here - wonderful voice, "From Russia with Love" is a classic
David nixon is widely listed at 6'1", am I really only seeing a 6" difference in their heights in this video at time point: 10:44?
Would have doubt Matt was taller than 5'4"
I got to know Matt's oldest son Mitch who interestingly was roughly my height (5'10"), a really nice guy who - like his Dad - passed away too young.

My dad used to play guys like Matt Monro, Perry Como, Andy Williams etc back in the day. Given the music I was into at the time, I was like ok, that's cool but..... It took a few years before I realised how good these guys were but I always loved Born Free by Monro - what a voice. Interestingly, the guys I have exampled were a lot shorter than I imagined them to be - I really only saw them in portrait on album covers - of course you can't judge height by the head/face but to me, Monro and Como at least looked and sounded like they were reasonably big guys - I was surprised to find out it was not the case.

Matt Monro was the greatest singer who ever lived or will ever live on this face of the Universe. He was perfect in every way possible way.
He sang with his heart and soul. Nobody will ever compare with his talent and grace ever.

5'6" -- no way. See:Click Here
Tony Bennett is reckoned to be 5'7".
In other pictures, Matt Monro is several inches shorter than Alma Cogan, and also similarly shorter than a group of Philippino people, who I believe are shorter than average.
Heads don't vary very much in size. His body is very small in relation to his head. The padded suit shoulders compensate for that.
I doubt that he was more than 5'4", but none the worse for that
