Herbert Kilpin (24 January 1870  – 22 October 1916) was an English footballer. He started playing in his home town with Notts Olympic and then he played with Saint Andrews, before moving to Italy in 1891 where he became one of the charter members and a player of Internazionale Torino. In 1898 he moved to Milan where, the following year, founded A.C. Milan with Alfred Edwards. Kilpin became the first captain of the Rossoneri, as well as the first coach. He played eight seasons with the team and won three national titles (1901, 1906 and 1907). He ended his career with Milan when non-Italian players were banned from the league. When World War I broke out, he remained in Italy, where he died in 1916. He was buried anonymously in the main cemetery in Milan, in the wing reserved for Christians Protestants. His tomb was abandoned for decades until it was rediscovered by a historian. Later, thanks to the interest of the company via Turati, his tomb was moved into a dovecote to the Monumental Cemetery in Milan, in the Gallery BC Lower East, Department 15, cell 162.
