Sir Granville Bantock (7 August 1868 – 16 October 1946) was a British composer of classical music.

Granville Ransome Bantock was born in London. His father was an eminent Scottish surgeon. He was intended by his parents for the Indian Civil Service but he suffered poor health and initially turned to chemical engineering. At the age of 20, when he began studying composers' manuscripts, at South Kensington Museum Library, he was drawn into the musical world. His first teacher was Dr Gordon Saunders at Trinity College of Music. In 1888 he entered the Royal Academy of Music where he studied harmony and composition with Frederick Corder winning the Macfarren Prize in the first year it was awarded.
