Captain The Honourable Norman de l'Aigle Grosvenor (22 April 1845 – 21 November 1898),[1] was a British Liberal Party[2] politician.

A member of the Grosvenor family headed by the Duke of Westminster, Grosvenor was a younger son of Robert Grosvenor, 1st Baron Ebury, third son of Robert Grosvenor, 1st Marquess of Westminster. Robert Grosvenor, 2nd Baron Ebury, was his elder brother.[3] He was returned to parliament at an unopposed by-election[2] in December 1869 as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Chester,[4] succeeding his cousin Earl Grosvenor, who had succeeded to the peerage. He did not stand again at the 1874 general election.[2]

Grosvenor married Caroline Susan Theodora, daughter of James Stuart-Wortley, in 1881. She was a novelist and artist. One of their daughters, Susan Charlotte Grosvenor, married John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir. Grosvenor died in November 1898, aged 53. His wife died in August 1940.[3]
