Charles John Allen (1862–1956) was a British sculptor, a figure in the New Sculpture movement.

Born in Greenford, Middlesex, Allen studied at the Lambeth School of Art and then apprenticed with the London architectural sculpture firm Farmer & Brindley in 1879 and became the assistant to Hamo Thornycroft for four years. In 1894 Allen moved to Liverpool, where he spent more than thirty years as a respected teacher at the University of Liverpool and Vice-Principal at the Liverpool City School of Art.
