There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Barber, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is extinct while one is still extant.

The Barber Baronetcy, of Culham Court in the County of Berkshire, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 29 February 1924 for the property developer and solicitor William Barber.[1] The title became extinct on his death in 1927.

The Barber Baronetcy, of Greasley in the County of Nottingham, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 25 July 1960 for Philip Barber.[2] He served on the Nottinghamshire County Council as a councillor from 1898 to 1925, as an Alderman from 1925 to 1961 and as its Chairman from 1931 to 1945. As of 2012 the title is held by his grandson, the third Baronet, who succeeded his father in 1995.
