Lucy May Cranwell (August 7, 1907 – June 8, 2000), New Zealand botanist (palynology). Appointed curator of botany at Auckland Museum (1929–1943). In the 1920s and 1930s Cranwell and her botanical companion Lucy Moore undertook several filed trips, and Cranwell collected more than 4.000 specimens of plants to the Thomas Frederic Cheeseman herbarium. After her marriages she sometimes published as Lucy Cranwell Smith.
She was made a Fellow of the Linnaean Society (London) in November 1937, "in recognition of botanical research work done both in New Zealand and Sweden and because of efforts she has made to stimulate interest in botany through her position at the Auckland Museum."
