Frank Mycroft (30 June 1873 – 26 September 1900) was an English cricketer who played for Derbyshire between 1893 and 1895.

Mycroft was born in Shirland Toadhole Furnace, Derbyshire, the son of Matthew Mycroft, a farmer of 70 acres (280,000 m2), and his wife Eliza. Mycroft started playing for Derbyshire in the 1893 season before they were included in the County Championship. He was a wicket-keeper for the club and played in two first-class matches both against Yorkshire in the 1894 and 1895 seasons, standing in for the regular wicket-keeper William Storer. Mycroft was a left-handed batsman who was last man in his matches.
