Albert Ernest Griffiths was my father. The family lived at the Bridge Inn.

A notebook of his brother Fred's (1900 - 1938) records the following. Fred was a professional golfer.

"Went to Rhyl on bikes Sunday August 10th 1924 with T. Hollis and W. MacGregor. Started 10.30 a.m. Arrived Rhyl 1.30 p.m. Steady riding. Left Rhyl 6.30 p.m. Arrived home 9.15 p.m. Padeswood to Bodfari; right turn there through Trefnant on to Rhuddlan through St. Asaph; right on to Rhyl. Left bikes at the garage on the Prom. Had lunch on the sands & then went for a walk along the prom. Called at the Cafe & had some Ice and Soda drink. Left there to hear the band. From there to have a lie down & then another walk along the prom & then home. A very nice day spent."


His brother was Edward John Griffiths. He was a policeman who was on a course in Pudsey, West Yorkshire but came home to volunteer for the armed forces on the second day of WWI. He went to Litherland in Liverpool to train in the Royal Welch Fusiliers. He was home on leave and was coming out of the Congs Church when two old ladies gave him a white feather. He went back on service and was killed on 20th November 1917, aged 26, leaving no family.
