His clients were mainly in Cambuslang but his specialisation in School Board work brought many commissions in Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire. In Glasgow he was secretary of the architectural section of the Glasgow Philosophical Society, and was responsible for the lecture programme, giving many of the lectures himself. He was an excellent photographer and made his own lantern slides.
Miller married Agnes Murdoch Turnbull. They had four children: James, Andrew Lindsay Junior (both of whom became architects), John and Mary.
Miller died relatively early of pleurisy on 6 June 1903 at his home, Borgie, Cambuslang. The practice was continued by his two older sons.
