Herbert Charles "Charlie" Dummett (9 January 1891 – 4 May 1976)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Dummett made three appearances for Collingwood in the 1909 VFL season, as an 18-year-old.[2] He didn't feature at all in 1910, when Collingwood went on to claim the premiership.[2] In 1911 he played just one senior game.[2] His brother, Alf Dummett, was also at Collingwood in these years but they never got the opportunity to play together.[3]

From 1927 to 1945, Dummett goal umpired 264 VFL matches, the most ever by a former player. He officiated in the 1933 and 1943 VFL Grand Finals.[4]
