Robert George Wilmot Berkeley (23 April 1898 - 28 August 1969) was an English cricketer who played four first-class games for Worcestershire shortly after the First World War. Three of these came in friendly matches in 1919, with the other being his only County Championship appearance three years later.

In 1927 he married the Hon Myrtle Dormer, daughter of the 14th Baron Dormer. He was in the Army in both First and Second World Wars, reaching the rank of captain.

Berkeley was born in Warley Place, Romford, Essex. Educated at Downside and Oratory School. He died at the age of 71 in Bristol.
