Mr. W. B. Griffin

At the church of the English Martyrs, at Sparkhilt, Birmingham, yesterday, a requiem Mass was offered for the soul of Councillor William Bernard Griffin, a widely-known public man in the Midland city, and--as a tribute in the Birmingham Police Court, last Tuesday, testified—an excellent magistrate, Mr. Griffin's death, which occurred suddenly at his home on Monday night, as the result of a seizure, bereaves among others three active workers for the Church. Two sons are Don Basil Griffin, 0.S.B., of St. Osburg's, Coventry, and the Rev. Bernard Griffin, D.D., D.C.L., secretary to the Archbishop of Birmingham; and one of Mr. Griffin's daughters is a Sister of Mercy at Camp Hill.

When Mr. Griffin became a member of the Birmingham City Council, in 1920, he had already done much good service in the war years, on the Sparkhill Citizens' Committee, the War Pensions Committee, and other bodies.
