Milly Nettleton

Colleagues will be sorry to learn of the death, on 25 July 2020, of Milly Nettleton, former administrator in the Department of French and Joint Honours in Modern Languages.

Milly joined the secretarial staff in the Department of French in September 1990. When, in 1998, a new department responsible for Joint Honours in Modern Languages was established, Milly was chosen to lead the administrative staff.  The post was hugely demanding, involving the administrative welfare of around 300 students across some 20 degree programmes, aided by a staff of four. The new department turned out to be very successful, thanks largely to Milly.  

Milly retired from the University in 2009 after nineteen years’ service to the University and her funeral was held on 17 August 2020.
