I thought I'd just post up enlargements of some of the photographs that Alister Williams has kindly sent us of the Wrexham memorials. The first one is of the relevant part from the memorial in the Parish Church to "the men of Wrexham who died for their country in the Great War" showing two listings for Privates "G. Griffiths" under the Royal Welsh Fusiliers' section:
The next picture is from one of the two First World War plaques in the Memorial Hall on Bodhyfryd showing a "Pte. Griffiths, G. R.W.F."
Whilst the final one is of the Wrexham panel in the North Wales Heroes Memorial Arch Building at Bangor, where again we have two entries for "Griffiths, G.":
It is not clear why the Memorial Hall plaque only gives one G. Griffiths whilst both the memorial in St Giles and the North Wales Heroes Arch have two. It's worth noting here that the other name under "Pte. Griffiths, G. R.W.F." is for a "Tpr. Griffiths, C. D. Guards", who would seem to be a Charles Griffiths, 9954, 6th Dragoon Guards (Carabiniers), as the plaque looks to have been partly arranged by regiment/corps first rather than being strictly alphabetical.
We've also been looking things up on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's website and in the relevant volume of Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19
, and there would appear to have been two George Griffiths who fought and died with the Royal Welsh, and who both lived in Wrexham - our George Griffiths, 10916, 1st Btn Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and another George Griffiths, 6641, 16th Btn Royal Welsh Fusiliers. This second George Griffiths, who is also commemorated on the Menin Gate at Ypres, was originally from Brymbo and died on 31 July 1917 aged 41. As this other George Griffiths was not a native of Wrexham it may be that the "Pte. Griffiths, G. R.W.F." named on the Memorial Hall plague is indeed our George Griffiths rather than the George from Brymbo.
Anyway, many thanks to Alister for the pictures.
