This is a list of frigates of World War II. The list includes frigate class ships, such as US Navy "destroyer escorts", and British "escort destroyers" and sloops. Note that US Navy "escort destroyers", are destroyer class vessels and found in that list.[1][2][3][4]

The List of ships of World War II contains major military vessels of the war, arranged alphabetically and by type. The list includes armed vessels that served during the war and in the immediate aftermath, inclusive of localized ongoing combat operations, garrison surrenders, post-surrender occupation, colony re-occupation, troop and prisoner repatriation, to the end of 1945.

For smaller vessels, see also List of World War II ships of less than 1000 tons. Some uncompleted Axis ships are included, out of historic interest. Ships are designated to the country under which they operated for the longest period of the World War II, regardless of where they were built or previous service history.
