Abstract: We determine all $ (1,1)$-knots which admit an essential meridional surface, namely, we give a construction which produces $ (1,1)$-knots having essential meridional surfaces, and show that if a $ (1,1)$-knot admits an essential meridional surface, then it comes from the given construction.
