I have placed a grid onto an open source Ordnance Survey map that corresponds to Ordnance Survey Eastings and Northings. I have a value for each grid square between zero and 30.

How do I use these values to produce a density map with 4 categories in QGIS 3?

You want the "Graduated" symbology option.

Just choose the column the has the values and choose 4 classes.

    Just a small remark: if grids are not the same size you need some normalization, e.g. "value" / $area, in case if they are the same size simply use absolute values.
