Albert Henry Millard was born in Cardiff on 1 April 1915 and educated at University College, Cardiff, and the Welsh National School of Medicine, qualifying MB BCh in 1938 and proceeding to the London MB BS the following year. He held appointments at Cardiff Royal Infirmary and Barry Surgical and Accident Hospital. Shortly after the outbreak of the second world war he was commissioned in the RAMC, serving in France, Egypt, and North Africa with the 8th Army, holding the rank of Major. After demobilization in 1946 he held surgical appointments at Llandough Hospital, Penarth, and the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, and in 1953 took the FRCS. He was appointed a Royal College of Surgeons of England surgical tutor. His experience in paediatric surgery and expertise in surgery of the oesophagus enabled him to develop specialized techniques.

He was a man of integrity and kindness, always immaculately dressed and quiet in speech and manner. He was respected and appreciated by his patients, whose interests and well-being were his first consideration. He married Lilian Doreen Wright in 1945. They had no children. He died on 18 July 1975 after a long and distressing illness.
