William Henry "Bill" Moore (16 October 1863 – 25 February 1956) was an Australian cricketer who represented both New South Wales and Western Australia at first-class level.

From Maitland, New South Wales, Moore came from a large cricketing family, with his father, uncle, brother, and two of his nephews all playing first-class cricket for New South Wales. One of his nephews was Charlie Macartney, who later played Test cricket for the Australian national cricket team.[1] Moore played all four matches for New South Wales in the 1893–94 Sheffield Shield, playing as a wicket-keeper. The second of these matches, against South Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground, was played alongside his brother, Leon Moore, the only time the brothers played together at first-class level.[2]

Batting right-handed, Moore's highest first-class score, 31 not out, was made in the return match against South Australia, at the Adelaide Oval.[3] Later in the 1890s, Moore moved to Fremantle, Western Australia, and captained Western Australia in a match against South Australia in April 1899, held at the WACA Ground.[4] Having also played grade cricket for Fremantle teams, he later returned to New South Wales, where he died in Lane Cove, a suburb of Sydney, on 25 February 1956.[5][6]
