Sir Walter Greaves Greaves-Lord (21 September 1878 - 18 June 1942), born Walter Greaves Lord, was a British Member of Parliament and judge.

Born in Ince, Lord was educated at Wigan Grammar School, Southport College and University College, Liverpool. He became a barrister with Gray's Inn, a King's counsel in 1919, a bencher in 1920, and treasurer of the inn in 1933.[1]

Lord changed his surname to "Greaves-Lord" in 1910. That year, he stood for the Conservative Party in Ince, but was not elected. He remained involved with the party, and was elected for Norwood at the 1922 United Kingdom general election, serving until February 1935, when he was appointed as a High Court Judge. He also served as chancellor of the Primrose League in 1926/27. In 1927, he was knighted.[1]

Greaves-Lord served as a judge until 1940, when he retired.[1]
