Richard Henry Jones (3 November 1916 – 14 July 2004) was an English cricketer. Jones was a left-handed batsman who bowled right-arm medium pace. He was born at Redditch, Worcestershire. He was known later in life as Richard Henry Cartwright-Jones.

Jones made a single first-class appearance for Warwickshire against Somerset at Edgbaston in the 1946 County Championship.[1] Opening the bowling in Somerset's first-innings, he bowled eight wicketless overs, though conceded just 12 runs from them.
