Mills was articled to the architect Henry Edward Cooper of Bloomsbury in 1868.[2] He established his own independent practice in Banbury, Oxfordshire in about 1875,[5] where by 1881 he had premises at 13, High Street.[2]

Mills served as architectural clerk to the agent for the Clifden Estates,[2] for whom he completed Holdenby House in 1878.[4] Mills designed a number of public buildings in mixed styles, usually neo-Jacobean.[6] His extension of the Oxford Union was completed posthumously.

Mills was elected an Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects (ARIBA) in 1882.[2]
