I've known some Millers through Dr Triplett's... possible they could be relatives.

I hope you have some luck and that someone has some useful information for you, Percy. I remember that when you asked on the previous forum if anyone knew of the Miller family, I asked my mother if she could help but she didn't recognise the name.
My mother lived in Rectory Road, where I was born, and one of my aunts and uncle lived in the Central Avenue end of Hemmen Lane. I got to know several names of people living in that area, but I can't ever remember the name Miller mentioned. I did know of a Miller family who lived just off Bourne Avenue, though.
I will keep thinking and you never know, some memories may come back of a Miller family in Hesa Road.

Take care
Marian

The name Miller has been mentioned before. I was at school with a chap named Bernard Miller, he lived in a house on the corner of Hesa Road and Coldharbour Lane. I lived at 194 Central Avenue .I believe he had a sister by the name of Sheila. He stuttered quite badly during normal conversation, however our teacher had four or five of us including Bernard, stand in the front of the class with our books open to a set page . When given the go ahead we all commenced reading aloud the chapter. Bernard spoke in time with us all never stuttering once. The teacher then signalled each of us in turn to cease reading and eventually Bernard was alone reading without noticing everyone else had stopped. He immediately started to stutter. We were fortunate to have teachers in our school in those days who were very instrumental in helping students overcome disabilities. Those students who were left-handed were not punished because and made to use the right hand. As a member of the choir Bernard could put us all to shame with his lovely clear voice and perfect pitch whilst singing. He was not affected with his stammer while singing. Of course I am not aware what time frame you are talking of , but if it is any help, I was with Bernard at Townfield School from grade (or Form 1) until I left school at the age of 14, in March 1940. Many of us lost touch with each other during the war years. Some never did come back.

Hi mwp .. I remember quite a few names of the families in Rectory Road and you must have been living there when we were.
I am guessing that you lived the other end of Rectory Road from the Uxbridge Road. It sure is a small world :-)

Hi mwp: Number 13 would have been further along the road on the other side to my Grandmother's house, which was number 26. There was also Lily who lived next door.
With Best Wishes
Marian

Just a quick follow up Bedwyn. Did you manage to get any useful info on the Miller family?
