Burton Constable railway station was a station on the Hull and Hornsea Railway, and served the villages of Marton and Burton Constable in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

It opened on 28 March 1864 as "Marton", but was renamed "Burton Constable" on 1 August 1864, to avoid confusion with various other Martons elsewhere. It was renamed again (to avoid confusion with Constable Burton on the Wensleydale Railway), on 1 January 1922 and became known as "Ellerby". It closed following the Beeching Report on 19 October 1964.
