Edwin William Walker (27 December 1909 – 16 March 1994) was an English cricketer. Walker was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Coalville, Leicestershire.

Walker made a single first-class appearance for Leicestershire against Worcestershire in the 1930 County Championship at New Road, Worcester.[1] Worcestershire batted first and made 222 all out, with Walker taking the wicket of Leslie Wright to finish the innings with figures of 1/21 from seventeen overs. Leicestershire were dismissed for just 58 in their response, with Walker dismissed for a single run by Reg Perks.
