The Bulls' flickering hopes of a place in the end-of-season LeagueTwo play-off's have all but disappeared after falling to this narrow 1-0 defeat.
United found Grimsby's 4-5-1 formation difficult to break down all afternoon, and will perhaps wonder why they didn't stretch matters until late in the match.
The Mariners win improves further their excellent recent run of form to six wins from their last seven games - and the victory secured the club a 'league double' over Hereford.
On a blustery afternoon the Mariners forged the better openings in the first half with Tom Newey, Ciaran Toner and Nick Fenton all going close for the visitors.
The Bulls' showed more in the attacking third after the interval and had the ball in the back of the net in the 54th minute when Steve Guinan stooped to head home, only to see his effort chalked off for an alleged push on Mariners 'keeper Phil Barnes.
The crucial breakthrough came in the 77th minute after Grimsby substitute Peter Till's knockdown fell into the path of Paul Bolland who burst into the area before hammering home a fierce shot past Wayne Brown into the roof of the net.
United's best chance of the match came inside the final three minutes after Danny Thomas slipped his marker on the left, before cutting back for Alan Connell. The goal was at his mercy, however, somehow the ex Torquay striker ballooned his effort high over the cross bar. A moment which summed up Hereford's afternoon.
The Bulls' will now need to raise their game significantly for next weekend's long trip to play-off contenders Darlington.
