William John Palmer : Milner 1904-1906; 52nd child to be enrolled at Plumtree School. Father of Helen Woodley who ran tuckshop, and grandfather of Sandi Griffin. As both Helen and Sandi were attached to Milner, (and most probably there were no "houses" as such in 1904) we have taken the liberty of attaching him to Milner. He always regaled his grandchildren with stories of the extremely strict headmistress of the time, Miss Musson (?) and life in general at Plumtree. Deceased.
