The list of players is divided into three articles:
- Players (A-M) – An alphabetical list of players who have played for Bristol Rovers in either the Football League or the Southern League, with surnames beginning with a letter somewhere in the range A–M.
- Players (N-Z) – As above, but with surnames between N and Z.
- Players with no league appearances – A list of players who have been allocated squad numbers since their introduction in 1999, but have not played in any league matches.
- League players by nationality – a summary of non-British players who have played league football for Rovers.
