Biographical NoteHarold Chalton Bradshaw CBE M.Arch FRIBA was a British architect.

He was born in Liverpool on 15 February 1893.

Bradshaw was a Rome Scholar in 1913. During the First World War he served in the Royal Engineers as a Captain. After the war, Bradshaw designed Guards Memorial, St. James Park with Gilbert Ledward, sculptor. He was awarded the design of the Ploegsteert Memorial (sculpture by Gilbert Ledward) and the surrounding cemetery after his original winning designs for memorials in Lille and Cambrai were abandoned, following concerns raised over the number and scale of memorials the Commission planned to erect in France and Belgium. Bradshaw also designed the Commission's Memorials at Louverval and Cambrai (completed 1930 with sculpture by Jagger).

He was First Secretary of the Fine Arts Commission.

Harold Chalton Bradshaw died in 1943.
