The English composer David Bedford, the brother of conductor Steuart Bedford, died on 1 October 2011.

Straddling the worlds of popular and classical music, Bedford orchestrated Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, and his original compositions include Twelve Hours of Sunset and Star Clusters, Nebulae and Places in Devon. David Bedford was born 4 August 1937.
