Inscription

Alice Henrietta Miller (née Hunt)  (1849 – 3 June 1913)

Alice was born in Pangbourne, near Reading in Berkshire and baptised there on 11 November 1849. She was the daughter of Thomas and Annie and had moved to live in Fulbourn by the time she was 12 years old. Her father had been a  railway porter, but moved to Cambridgeshire to become a police constable.  Alice worked as a school mistress and aged 21 was teaching in Royston. She married Daniel Miller in 1880 and they lived at the Royal Oak, Fulbourn where he was documented as being both a brewer and publican (1881).  They had four children: Lilian Hilda Mabel (1884-1963), Henrietta Mildred (1886-1942), Dora Evelyn (1888-1975) and Rev. Leonard Victor (1890-1979), all of  whom were born in Fulbourn. Daniel later ran the Town Arms, Butter Row (1893) and by 1899 the family were living at 15 Brandon Place. In 1901 Daniel was documented as being a brewer’s labourer, Alice a college bedmaker.  Also living with them was 11 months old Gladys May Miller who was noted as a granddaughter, but who the couple raised as their own daughter.  Alice died at Brandon Place and her funeral took place on 7 June 1913.

Gladys May Miller (10 April 1900 –  21 December 1961)

Gladys was Alice and Daniel’s granddaughter, possibly the illegitimate child of one of their daughters.  She was raised by her grandparents and in 1939 was living with her aunts Lilian and Henrietta at 20 Riverside. She worked as a shop assistant, and died at 20 Riverside aged 61 years old.

Daniel Herbert Miller (1847 –  27 October 1919)

Daniel was the son of Richard and Maria (née Rule) and was born in Fulbourn.  He was baptised on 4 October 1847 at St. Vigor’s Church, Fulbourn and grew up at the Rose and Crown pub (1861) and then the Royal Oak pub (1871).  He ran the Royal Oak after his father.

In April 1893 Daniel was charged with harbouring prostitutes at the Town Arms. He  pleaded not guilty, and was fined £5 plus an endorsement on his licence. The Town Arms was permanently closed a few months later.

After Alice’s death he moved to live at 22 John Street (at least 1914-) and died aged 72 years old.
