Samuel Griffiths ( -1881) of the London Iron Trade Exchange

1881 Obituary [1]

We have to record the death on Tuesday last, the 24th inst., of Mr. Samuel Griffiths, of London and formerly of Wolverhampton.

Mr. Griffiths, who was well known to all in the iron trade, and particularly to those connected with the Staffordshire district, was, we believe, originally a chemist at Wolverhampton, and subsequently started business as a. banker and bill broker, and became considerably interested in iron works.

At a later period Mr. Griffiths, owing to the bad state of the Staffordshire iron trade, fell into financial difficulties, and he ultimately established himself in London, where he conducted a weekly publication, the London Iron Trade Exchange, which he had previously carried on at Wolverhampton under the name of Griffiths’ Iron Trade Circular.
