Sir Edward Brantwood Maufe was an Englishmarker architect (born 12 December 1883 in Ilkleymarker, Yorkshiremarker; died on his birthday in 1974 in Buxtedmarker, East Sussexmarker).

He read Architecture at St John's College, Oxfordmarker (BA 1908, MA 1919) and studied Design at the Architectural Association School of Architecturemarker.

His first commission was Kelling Hallmarker in Norfolk (1912). Other works include the Festival Theatre in Cambridgemarker, the Air Forces Memorialmarker overlooking Runnymedemarker, the Oxford Playhousemarker, St Columba's Churchmarker (Pont Streetmarker, London SW1) and won the competition to design Guildford Cathedralmarker (1932). He was the architect chiefly responsible, in the 1950s for the rebuilding of much of Gray's Innmarker and the Inner Templemarker which had been heavily damaged in bombing during World War II. He worked for the Imperial War Graves Commission (1943-1969) as principal architect (UK), then chief architect and artistic advisor; he was knighted for his work with the Commission.

Apparently indexed in the 1901 Census as "Edward B. Muff", an architect in Hampsteadmarker, he moved with his parents during the next decade to Red Housemarker, Bexleyheathmarker, Londonmarker which was originally designed for, and owned by, William Morris. The family name was originally Muff but was changed to Maufe in 1909.

When he received a knighthood early in 1954, Maufe lived at 139 Old Church Streetmarker, Chelsea, Londonmarker SW3. He died at his home at Shepherd's Hill, Buxted, Sussex in 1974. He married Gladys Stutchbury in 1910 and had one son.
