Funeral of WOII Bill Griffiths

Update on the Funeral arrangements for WOII Bill Griffiths RMP (MTD)

I've just spoken with George Woodall and apparently it's looking as though the funeral will be approximately a couple of weeks yet. This is due to the fact that Betty has had to make an appointment with the registrar to register Bill's death and the first available appointment is Tuesday next week 14th April so, going forward it is likely that the funeral will be the week following that. If there are any changes I'll let you know.

Notable EventsPosted by Bob Woolnough Tue, April 07, 2015 11:36:28

It is with great regret that I've had notification from George Woodall this weekend in the following:

Late yesterday afternoon (Sat 05/04/2015) I received a telephone call from Andrew the son of former TSM (WOII) Bill Griffiths MBE informing me that Bill had passed away at home a little earlier that day.
I shall forward you any details that I receive when they are known. I don't expect this to be after next Tuesday owing to Easter Monday holiday
Should you wish to send a condolence card to Betty and family, the address is:
Mrs E. Griffiths 70 Rowhill Avenue, Aldershot, Hants, GU11 3LP.
Please pass this message on to any former Mounted / Display Team members who you are in contact with, that knew Bill, I would be grateful.
