      This site might be of some interest
      Grahame Greene goes without saying, James Hadley Chase is debatable.
      I am a Peter Cheyney fan but not sure how he would be appreciated west of the Atlantic.  
      There are any number of British Crime Writers but I'm not aware of  much that you could satisfactorily describe as NOIR from the 40's.
         Some of Gerard Kersh's work is definitely noirish. 
      If you've got time you could try this.
      and this one is the best available for currently in print British Fiction
