The 1950 Dissolution Honours List was issued on 27 February to mark the dissolution of the United Kingdom parliament prior to the 1950 general election. The list contained only two names.[1]

The recipients of honours are displayed here as they were styled before their new honour, and arranged by honour, with classes (Knight, Knight Grand Cross, etc.) and then divisions (Military, Civil, etc.) as appropriate.
