Simon of Elmham (died 8 June 1257) was a medieval Bishop-elect of Norwich.
Simon was Prior of Norwich from 1235. He was elected to the see of Norwich about 9 November 1236 but his election was quashed by Pope Gregory IX on 17 January 1239 after King Henry III appealed to the pope and the case was heard by the papal legate Cardinal Otto (Oddone di Monferrato).
