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 (1921–1923), Middlesbrough (1923–1926), and then to Manchester United in April 1927, after a break. He remained there until 1931, resigning in part after United lost 12 consecutive matches during the 1930–31 season.

Coincidentally, in 1909 he had refereed the FA Cup fourth round (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 1914 match between Scotland and England.
