Richard Ashley (27 October 1902 in Axbridge, Somerset – 7 August 1974 in Selsey, Sussex), is a former first-class cricketer who played two matches for Somerset County Cricket Club in 1932. He also appeared in two first-class matches in India in the late 1930s, playing for Mysore in the Ranji Trophy and for the Europeans in the Bombay Pentangular Tournament. He was a right-handed batsman and a fast-medium bowler.

Ashley made his first-class début for Somerset in June 1932, making 9 runs in his solitary innings and claiming bowling figures of 1/0 off two overs as Somerset drew with Leicestershire.[1] He appeared again at the end of the same month, making 16 runs and not bowling in the innings and 74 run victory over Essex at Leyton.[2]
