George Cave, 1st Viscount Cave, GCMG, PC (23 February 1856 – 29 March 1928) was a lawyer and Conservative politician. He was Home Secretary under David Lloyd George from 1916 to 1919 and served as Lord Chancellor from 1922 to 1924 and again from 1924 to 1928.
Cave died in March 1928, aged 72, at his home ‘St Ann’s’, Burnham (probably what is now St Ann’s Villa holiday home) and was buried at Berrow. On the day of his death his resignation as Lord Chancellor had been accepted and it had been announced that he would be created an earl, and so his widow was created Countess Cave of Richmond. Having no children who lived to adulthood, the viscountcy became extinct on Lord Cave’s death, as did the earldom when his widow died in 1938.
