Edward F. Bramley (1905 – February 1989), known as Ted Bramley, was a British communist activist. Bramley wished to fight in the Spanish Civil War, but the CPGB refused him permission to do so, preferring him to remain in the UK, and appointing him as London District Secretary in 1937. He again hoped to enlist during World War II, but was rejected because he had suffered from tuberculosis. Instead, he focussed on his party work, leading a movement to occupy London Underground stations during bombing raids. This work led to his election, in 1946, to the London County Council in Mile End, alongside fellow communist Jack Gaster.
