A most unusual shot for this stream we have a coffin with flowers in the plush sitting room of a house. The coffin has been closed which probably means that viewing the remains has finished and he is about to be taken to his last resting place!..Robert Miller (1866–1931) was a Church of Ireland bishop in the first half of the 20th century...Miller was and educated at Trinity College, Dublin and ordained for Christ Church Derry in 1892. He was Rector of Donegal from 1894 to 1900. After a further incumbency at Raphoe he was Secretary of the Incorporated Society for Promoting Protestant Schools in Ireland until 1916.
