Edgar Bainton was born in London in 1880. He wrote four symphonies altogether, of which the first (in B flat, "A Phantasy of Life and Progress", opus 5) has been lost. The remaining three are now numbered one ("Before Sunrise", for contralto solo, chorus and orchestra), two (in D minor) and three (in C minor).!ZWRFHJrC!4jnW9wZG7PBuAD0LoXke7HIdWfiko 1qVkYsZqChTLc4

Duration: 27 minutes 27 seconds.

Wikipedia page: which has a note telling how in 1934 Bainton rejected Schönberg's application to teach at Sydney, due to "modernist ideas and dangerous tendencies."

Symphony 2 coupled with Clifford's Symphony 1 and Gough's Serenade on Chandos CHAN9757 with the BBC Philharmonic and Vernon Handley

Symphony 3 coupled with Boughton's Symphony 1 on Dutton Epoch CDLX7185 with the BBC Concert Orchestra, again conducted by Vernon Handley

I've got both recordings of those symphonies, plus the Dutton symphonic poems (coupled with Boughton's), but I've never really been able to get into Bainton, rather the same as with Cyril Scott.
