This is a list in alphabetical order of cricketers who have played for Somerset County Cricket Club in top-class matches from 1882 to 1885 inclusive and then continuously from 1891. Founded in 1875, the club held minor status until 1881 and again from 1886 to 1890. Somerset is classified as an important team by substantial sources from 1882 to 1885 and from 1891 to 1894;[1][2] classified as an official first-class team from 1895 by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the County Championship clubs;[3] classified as a List A team since the beginning of limited overs cricket in 1963.[4] and classified as a first-class Twenty20 team since the inauguration of the Twenty20 Cup in 2003.[5] Note that there is disagreement in the sources about the status of certain Somerset matches before 1882.

The details are the player's usual name followed by the years in which he was active as a Somerset player. Seasons given are first and last seasons; the player did not necessarily play in all the intervening seasons. Note that many players represented other top-class teams besides Somerset. Current players are shown as active to the latest season in which they played for the club.[6] The list excludes Second XI and other players who did not play for the club's first team; and players whose first team appearances were in minor matches only.
