Dates of existence
Andrew Lindsay Miller Jr. was born in Cambuslang, Lanarkshire on 29th July 1886, one of four children of Agnes Murdoch Miller (née Turnbull) and Andrew Lindsay Miller, an architect. He had two elder brothers, James and John and an elder sister, Mary. It is noted on the Dictionary of Scottish Architects that his father died in 1903 of pleurisy and that the practice was continued by his brother James (born 1879), who had been taken into partnership earlier that year as A. Lindsay Miller & Son. Miller attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1903 to 1907 as a student of architecture and was most likely employed as an assistant in the family firm. During the First World War, Miller served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders 9th battalion. He married Ella Rankin MacMillan on 11th October 1916 whilst serving in the War. He died in action on 12th October 1917, aged 31. The date of his death falls within the third battle of Ypres, from the 31st of July to the 10th of November 1917. The 12th of October 1917 marked the beginning of the phase known as the First Battle of Passchendaele. Miller has a memorial placed at Tyne Cot Memorial, Belgium. Miller is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour as well as on the Glasgow Institute of Architects Roll of Honour (Associate).
