Sir Herbert Henry Bartlett, 1st Baronet (30 April 1842 – 23 June 1921) was a civil engineer and contractor responsible for many landmark buildings in London.
Born at Hardington Mandeville, he was chairman and managing director of Perry & Company, a civil engineering contractor, based in Bow, east London, with which he was associated for 59 years. He was made a Baronet in 1913.
He married Ada Charlotte Barr, and had several children. He lived from 1900 at Cornwall Gardens in west London.
On his death his baronetcy passed to his grandson, Basil, as his two eldest sons had predeceased him (Herbert Evelyn Barlett, 1875-1917, and Hardington Arthur Bartlett 1877-1920, lost at sea).
The Bartlett, the Faculty of the Built Environment at University College London is named after him, as is the Bartlett Building at University College London. It was opened on 4 June 1920 to house Karl Pearson's Galton Eugenics Laboratory.
