Four other ships which served with the Royal Navy were also named Enterprise, but were not commissioned warships and so did not have the "HMS" prefix.

  • Enterprise, was a British East India Company's armed paddle steamer that served alongside the Fleet in the First China War from 1839 to 1840 and the Second Burmese War in 1852.
  • Enterprise, was an uncommissioned tugboat that was in service at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1899 to 1919 when she was renamed Emprise. She continued to serve until 1947.
  • Enterprise, was an uncommissioned auxiliary patrol anti-submarine net drifter with Harwich local forces from 1914 to 1918.
  • Enterprise II, was an uncommissioned drifter, originally based at Larne but transferred to Italian waters in November 1915. In March 1916 she struck a naval mine off Brindisi and sank with eight casualties.
