Baron Riverdale, of Sheffield in the County of York, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom[2]. It was created on 27 June 1935 for the Sheffield steel manufacturer Sir Arthur Balfour, 1st Baronet, Chairman of Arthur Balfour & Co Ltd.[1]

He was Chairman and President of Balfour & Darwins Ltd (formerly Arthur Balfour & Co Ltd) as well as President of the Association of British Chambers of Commerce. He was a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy in the Second World War.[1]

Since 1998, the titles have been held by his grandson, the third Baron, who succeeded in 1998. He is the only son of the Hon. Mark Robin Balfour, eldest son of the second Baron.[1]
