William Ellis (15 August 1919 – 9 June 2007) was an English cricketer. Ellis was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Rolleston, Nottinghamshire.

Ellis made two first-class appearances for Nottinghamshire in the 1948 County Championship, against Leicestershire and Worcestershire, with both matches played at Trent Bridge.[1] Against Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire won the toss and elected to bat first, making 176/6 declared, with Ellis not required to bat. Leicestershire responded in their first-innings by making 169/6, at which point the match, heavily impacted by adverse weather, was declared a draw.[2] In his second match, Worcestershire won the toss and elected to bat, making 200 all out. In response, Nottinghamshire made 334 all out in their first-innings, with Ellis being dismissed for 29 by Peter Jackson. Worcestershire reached 295/3 in their second-innings, with Ellis taking a single wicket, that of centurion Roly Jenkins for 109, to finish with figures of 1/49 from fifteen overs.[3]

He died at Dewsbury, Yorkshire, on 9 June 2007.
