The hundred of West Derby was an ancient division of the historic county of Lancashire, in northern England. It was sometimes known as West Derbyshire, the name alluding to its judicial centre being the township of West Derby (the suffix -shire meaning the territory was appropriated to the prefixed settlement).

It covered the southwest of Lancashire, containing the ancient ecclesiastical parishes of Walton, Sefton, Childwall, Huyton, Halsall, Altcar, North Meols, Ormskirk, Aughton, Warrington, Prescot, Leigh, Liverpool, Wigan, and Winwick. It corresponds roughly to areas of Merseyside north of the River Mersey and also covered parts of the modern West Lancashire Borough, Wigan Borough, and Warrington Borough and Halton Borough in Cheshire.
