William "Bill" Miller Allen (7 July 1889 – 13 November 1948) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Allen was a ruckman and played during a dour period for the club. He was with Melbourne from 1910 to 1923 but missed the 1916, 1917 and 1918 seasons due to the war. During the summer of 1914/15 he played a couple of first class cricket matches for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield.
