Geoffrey Littlejohn Ogilvy (25 January 1906 – 20 January 1962) played first-class cricket for Somerset in two matches in the 1936 season.[1] He was born at Lewisham in London and died at Dreemskerry, Maughold, Isle of Man.

Educated at St Bees School, Ogilvy was a right-handed middle-order batsman. He played in several Minor Counties matches for Dorset in 1931 and 1932.[2] His two first-class matches for Somerset were both in June 1936. Against Sussex he batted at No 4 and scored 29 and 3.[3] But later in the month he was at No 10 in the game against Cambridge University, scoring 12 in what was his last first-class innings.[4]
