LLEWELYN WYN GRIFFITH, Honorary Editor of the Society's Transactions from 1934 to 1954, Chairman of the Council of the Society from 1954 to 1973 and from 1973 a Vice-President of the Society, died on September 27th, 1977, only a few days before the death of his wife. A service of thanksgiving for his life and work, not only for his devoted work on behalf of the Society for so many years but also his devoted work in the many fields in which his interests had lain, was held in the Welsh Congregational Chapel, Kings Cross, London, on Thursday evening, February 9th, 1978. Despite the very severe weather that evening a large number of the members of the Society and many others, including represent- atives of institutions and bodies which Dr. Wyn Griffith had served or with which he had been associated during his long life came to join the members of his family in paying tribute to the memory of a man who had deserved well of his fellow men and of his country and in giving thanks for his life. The service was conducted by the Reverend Dr. W. T. Owen, Minister of the Welsh Congregational Chapel, Kings Cross, and a member of the Council of the Society. A passage from the Epistle to the Philippians was read in Welsh by the Chairman of the Council, Mr. Ben G. Jones and a passage from the Epistle to the Ephesians was read in English by the Chairman of the Board of Inland Revenue, Sir William Pile. Tributes were paid to Dr. Wyn Griffith and to Mrs. Wyn Griffith in Welsh by Professor Sir Idris Foster and in English by Sir Huw Wheldon. The music was arranged by Mr. Cyril Anthony and selected from the work of composers whose music had meant a great deal to Dr. Wyn Griffith the Adagio for organ and strings by Albinoni and music by John Sebastian Bach and by Henry Purcell. In closing the service, and before the final prayers and the blessing, Dr. Owen read from Dr. Wyn Griffith's personal Journal for October 9th, 1961, the following passage: If I had to choose one smallish piece of music which I cherish above all others, it is the Christopher Simpson Prelude which I've stuck
