Milburn (?) Grocers, East Hartford

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I'm a new member, born and raised in Cramlington. I'm trying to find out anything I can about the grocers' stores my great-great-grandfather used to own in East Hartford. His name was William Milburn - I don't know when the shop was opened but I think it closed down in the 1930s. I've tried google and poring over old maps, but no luck so far. Has anyone come across it in their research?

Many thanks in advance

Welcome @Emma Cuthbert - can't recall any photos or info on East Hartford having been posted on the site.

Entered "East Hartford" into the 'Search Box' - top right of the screen and the few comments that were returned only reference East Hartford - no info.


I think the only old photo from east Hartford that I have seen is the one on the Durham Mining Museum site showing a small bit of the village with the colliery behind. Link to the Hartford Colliery page is :-

    • Five parks in Northumberland are to be upgraded thanks to an investment of £287,000.
      Northumberland County Council's cabinet approved to spend £204,000, with the remaining £83,000 funded by contributions from the likes of town and parish councils.
      As part of its medium-term financial plan, the local authority has already set aside capital funding of £150,000 per year from 2018-19 to 2020-21 to invest in parks and green spaces.
      So far, money has been spent at Jennings Field in Bedlington , Astley Park in Seaton Delaval, and Eastwood Park in Prudhoe.
      Following the sign-off on Tuesday, Blyth's Ridley Park and Mermaid play area, Alexandra Park in Cramlington , Gallagher Park in Bedlington, and Rothbury's Riverside play area are all set to benefit.
      At Ridley Park, £45,000 will be spent in total with £25,000 being used to refurbish the hugely-popular water play area.
