Arthur David Granville (8 May 1911 – 1987) was a Welsh professional footballer.

Granville was born in Llwynypia. He joined Cardiff City in 1934 from the amateur side Porth United and, after a slow start, managed to establish himself in the side. He scored six league goals during his time at the club, all of which came from the penalty spot. Following the outbreak of World War II he stayed at Ninian Park to help coach the numerous youngsters, whilst serving in the Royal Air Force, and at the end of the war in 1946 he decided not to return to playing football and subsequently retired, instead becoming involved in assessing prospective players and also coaching local amateurs.
