William was born in 1877. He is the son of Richard Sandercock and Sarah Clark.

He graduated from the Winnipeg Normal School in 1895 and his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Manitoba in 1909.

William taught for many years across the west including Nelson, B.C., Carberry, M.B., and Calgary, A.B. He also held high school principal positions in many Saskatchewan communities including Strasbourg, Melfort, Biggar, and Watrous.

In his spare time he enjoyed writing and history. At the time of his death he had half completed a western novel, and had published a volume of poems in 1936 called “The Dance in the Buffalo Skull”. He was also somewhat of an expert in the ancient forts in Saskatchewan, and studied deeply the life and poetry of Keats.
