By observing the $sheet array you will get Title at the position of 4,1 as follows.

By changing this line as shown

 $cell = isset($sheet['cells'][4][1]) ? $sheet['cells'][4][1] : '';

But it looks like you have copied this code from somewhere. It is hard to identify your need and modify it. Change the code as per your requirement and if any error occurs then post your question on SO

as per your requirement your sheetData function should be like this

function sheetData($sheet) {
  $re = '<table>';     // starts html table

  $x = 1;
  while($x <= $sheet['numRows']) {
    $re .= "<tr>\n";
    $cell = isset($sheet['cells'][$x][1]) ? $sheet['cells'][$x][1] : '';

     if($cell != 'Title'){  // check for title here
        $re .= " <td>$cell</td>\n";  
        $re .= "</tr>\n"; 

  return $re .'</table>';     // ends and returns the html table
