Herbert Bamlett (1 March 1882 October 1941) was an English football manager and referee. He was only 32 when he refereed the 1914 FA Cup Final between Liverpool and Burnley.

He started in football management in the same year at Oldham Athletic during the club's halcyon days, before moving on to Wigan Borough (1921 23), Middlesbrough (1923 26), and then to Manchester United in April 1927, after a break. He remained there until 1931.

Coincidentally, in 1909 he had refereed the FA Cup quarter-final tie between Burnley and his future charges United — calling the game off due to heavy snow, at 1 0 to Burnley and with only 18 minutes left to play. He also refereed the Scotland-England match of 1914.
