George Teasdale (8 December 1831 – 9 June 1907) born in London, England, was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Teasdale was ordained an apostle on 16 October 1882, by church president John Taylor. Future Church President Heber J. Grant was ordained an apostle on the same date. Upon Teasdale's death he was succeeded in the Quorum of the Twelve by Anthony W. Ivins.

Teasdale served a mission for the church from 1887 to 1890 in which he preached in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Ireland. In the 1860s, he had served a mission to the United Kingdom and in the 1870s he served a mission to Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.

In 1891 Teasdale was made the president of the church's Mexican Mission.[2]

Teasdale died in Salt Lake City at age 75 of an intestinal obstruction.[3] He was buried at Salt Lake City Cemetery.
