Enoch Tranter (27 April 1842 – 23 September 1910) was an English cricketer active in the mid-1870s. Born at Old Park, Shropshire, Tranter was a left-handed batsman and left-arm roundarm fast bowler who made three appearances in first-class cricket.

During the 1870s Tranter played his club cricket for Sefton Park in Liverpool,[1] and was selected to play for Lancashire in 1875, making his debut in first-class cricket against Derbyshire at Old Trafford.[2] He made two further first-class appearances for Lancashire, one in 1875 against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord's, and against Kent at Rochdale in 1876.[2] Tranter took 3 wickets with his roundarm bowling, with best figures of 2/11.[3] When fielding he would often field at slip.[1]

His occupation outside of cricket was as a coal miner.[1] He died at Donnington Wood, Shropshire on 23 September 1910.
