Four Royal Navy ships have been named HMS Grenville. Vice Admiral Sir Richard Grenville was an Elizabethan sailor, explorer, and soldier:

  • HMS Grenville (1763), a 12-gun schooner of 69 tons purchased in Newfoundland on 7 June 1763, having formerly been called Sally, and used as a survey vessel. Broken up in March 1775.
  • HMS Grenville (1916), a destroyer leader launched on 17 June 1916 and sold in December 1931.
