Private Lhassan (or L'Hassan) Ben Houssein was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1882, at Islington, the eldest son of Hodge, a Moroccan born in Algiers, and Annie Houssein, of London. The younger Houssein followed into his father's career, performing as a tumbler at music halls with him and his siblings.

Houssein enlisted in early 1917 and died at a hospital later that year, on 13 November, of wounds received on the Western Front. He had been serving with the 1st Battalion, The South Wales Borderers.[1]

He is buried in Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery.
