Herbert Shepherd-Cross (1 January 1847 - 9 January 1916) was an English Conservative politician who represented Bolton.

Cross was born at Mortfield, Halliwell, Bolton. He was educated at Seafield House School at Lytham St Anne's, Harrow School and Exeter College, Oxford.[1] He adopted the name Shepherd-Cross after his marriage to Lucy Mary Shepherd Birley in 1870.

Shepherd-Cross was elected MP for Bolton in 1885. He held the seat until 1906. In 1896 he purchased the Palewell estate at East Sheen for development, and within a few years 150 houses had been built there.[2]
