William Frame was an English architect. He came from Melksham, Wiltshire, and was articled firstly to William Smith of Trowbridge, he then became assistant to John Prichard of Llandaff. In 1868, he entered the office of William Burges and worked with Burges at Cardiff Castle and Castell Coch. Following Burges's death in 1881, Frame remained in the service of John Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute and continued Burges's work at both castles, as well as designing the grade I listed Pierhead Building in the docks built by Bute's father. During these years he won the Royal Academy's gold medal and the Soane Medallion. Later in his life, Frame also produced a small number of very well regarded grandfather clocks in the village of Larkhall, Scotland that were commissioned by some of the aristocratic class of his time.
He died in April 1906, his latter years marred by alcoholism.
