Three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Wolfe, after General James Wolfe, victor of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759. A fourth was laid down but never launched:

  • HMS Wolfe was a 20-gun sloop on the Canadian Lakes. She was launched in 1813, renamed HMS Montreal in 1814 and was sold in 1832.
  • HMS Wolfe was to have been a 104-gun first rate. She was laid down in 1814 but was cancelled in 1831, with the hull being destroyed on the stocks in a storm in 1832.
  • HMS Wolfe was a Lord Clive class monitor, built as Sir James Wolfe and Wolfe before being named HMS General Wolfe before her launch in 1915. She was sold in 1921.
  • HMS Wolfe was a submarine depot ship, previously the SS Montcalm. The Montcalm became an armed merchant cruiser in 1939, was purchased and converted in 1942 and was broken up in 1952.
