John Henry Frost (30 January 1847 — 1 November 1916) was an English cricketer who played first class cricket for Derbyshire in 1874.

Frost was born in Wirksworth, the son of George Frost, a farmer/builder, and his wife Mary. He became a joiner[1] and played cricket for Wirksworth - taking part in matches against All England XI in 1868 and 1870

Frost played for Derbyshire in the 1873 season in a miscellaneous match against Nottinghamshire. He made his debut and only first-class appearance during the 1874 season, a victory against Kent. Frost was an upper-order batsman and played alongside his brother George Frost for a 41-run second-wicket partnership.[2] His brother had first played for Derbyshire two years previously and had a much longer career, playing 37 games between 1872 and 1880. Frost played one extra game in 1874 a match against United South of England. In 1883 and 1884 Frost played several games for Staffordshire.

Frost died in Ashover at the age of 69.
