Keith Relf and Cyril Davies have been mentioned. Davies was the undisputed godfather of British harp and got a whole lot of us started on the slippery slope!...
Very much the first British exponent of amplified Chicago harp.
Plus there were:
Paul Jones with Manfred Mann - still playing excellently with The Blues Band.
Duster Bennett - superb player, led his own band consisting of himself on harp, guitar, hi-hat symbol and bass drum. Died tragically young.
John Mayall of course
More occasional players were:
Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac fame... great guitarist and passable harp player.
Jack Bruce with Cream.
Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Roger Daltry and John Lennon... from time to time and of variable standard.
And I'm sure a lot more who have drifted out of mind (mine not theirs... although in some cases...!)
