Assuming mm macros, .TP (top of page) and .BS/BE (bottom block) are
what I use for multi-line page headers/footers.  You can redefine
the TP macro to be whatever you need:

.de TP
spacing, line length etc instructions
.tl \" first three part title
.tl \" second three part title


spacing, font etc instructions
.tl \" first three part footer
.tl \" second three part footer

see groff_mm(7) for minimal instructions.
