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 :-

    • Cemetery-walking dog owners who allow their animals to foul graves and headstones are to be targeted by enforcement officers.
      Northumberland County Council is stepping up patrols to combat an increase in reported incidents of dog fouling and owners failing to keep dogs on leads in cemeteries.
      Enforcement Officers will be on patrol in cemeteries where dog owners have been sighted allowing their dogs to roam around cemetery grounds.
      Council cemeteries are subject to dog control orders which require dogs to be kept on a short lead, not more than 1.5 metres in length, at all times and must be under control. An extendable lead is not permitted.
      As in all other public places, it is an offence to allow a dog to foul and not clean up. Signs at all the entrances to the cemetery instruct dog owners to keep their dogs on leads.
      The council has received an increasing number of complaints of dogs fouling in cemeteries, especially in the Bedlington and Blyth area and say this is particularly distressing for those visiting the graves of loved ones.
