Commander (retired) George Griffiths, M.V.O. (15 September, 1884 – ) served in the Royal Navy.

There was an earlier British sailor named George Griffiths, and possibly others, so this page has a "(b)" in its title.

Birth dates and such for these pages might indicate confusion between various men.
