  • Birth*: Frederick Griffith Griffiths was born on 19 January 1913 at Steyning, Sussex, England.1,2

  • Marriage*: Frederick Griffith Griffiths married Ernestine Mary Collard-Scruby on 11 September 1943 at St John the Baptist, Southend, Lewisham, London, England.3
  • Anecdote: Emigrated to Western Australia in October 1954. Daughter Moir had rheumatic fever and it was thought that going to a warm country was a remedial thing to do at the time. Sailed from Tilbury on P&O’s “Oronsay” and arrived in Fremantle. Stayed at the Archbishop of Perth’s place in Perth for a week or two and then went up to Merredin whereFrederick was Rector at All Saints, Merredin. Unfortunately the heat was too much for wife Mary.
