Baron Alvingham, of Woodfold in the County Palatine of Lancaster, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 10 July 1929 for Robert Yerburgh. He had previously represented Dorset South in the House of Commons as a Conservative. His father, Robert Yerburgh, had earlier represented Chester in Parliament. In 1916 Royal approval was given to a peerage to whom he had been signified, but he died before the patent was issued. As of 2010 the title is held by the first Baron's son, the second Baron, who succeeded his father in 1955. He is a retired Major-General in the Coldstream Guards.
