A LATVIAN woman will make a pilgrimage to West Oxfordshire next week to find out more about her late grandfather.

Iveta Indriksone, who lives in Yorkshire, will be staying in Witney on Monday and Tuesday in the hopes of learning more about Janis Millers, better known as Johnny.

Mr Millers – Ms Indriksone's maternal grandfather – left Latvia shortly after the Second World War and came to Carterton.

He last spoke to his daughter in 1956.

After initially working on a farm, he later married a woman named Phyllis Cox.

Mr Millers died in 1994 and is buried in the nearby parish of Black Bourton.

It is understood his wife died in 2014.

Ms Indriksone, whose mother still lives in Latvia, said she and her family would love to be able to find out more about his life in the UK, what work he did, and if he went on to have another family.

She will be staying at the Crofters Guest House in Witney and has asked anyone who knew her father to get in touch by going to the guest house, sending an email to ivetain77@gmail.com or calling 07570669317.
