Christopher was born in Wolverhampton in 1895, the son of Mary Elizabeth and George Miller. They were living in Pattingham in 1901 and in 1911, along with Christopher’s siblings George Enoch, Maud Eva, Edith Mary, Randolph Courtney and Olive Millicent.
Christopher enlisted in the 2nd/8th Battalion of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment (number 4495, later 306418), attesting on 10 December 1915. He started serving in France from May 1916, but was reported as missing on 7 September 1916. By 30 May 1917, he was “regarded for official purposes as having died on or since” that date. He is remembered at the Loos Memorial in France, as well as on the memorial of the Wolverhampton Higher Grade School (which he presumably attended), and the Pattingham Roll of Honour.
