Rolf Noskwith (born in Germany in 1919) was a British cryptographer in World War II.

He worked in Hut 8 at Bletchley Park on German naval Enigma traffic from 1941 to 1945, and subsequently on other ciphers. He recalled that most people were addressed by their first name there; the two exceptions were Alan Turing, known as Prof, and F.A. Kendrick, who he was surprised to see listed in the index of Codebreakers as Kendrick, Tony.

He emigrated to England with his parents in 1932, and was educated at Nottingham High School and Trinity College, Cambridge.

From 1946 he worked for Charnos, the textile company founded by his father, and around 2000 was non-executive chairman of Charnos plc.
