    He was born Ken­neth Grif­fiths in Tenby, Pem­brokeshire, Wales. His par­ents sep­a­rated and left Tenby six months after his birth, leav­ing him with his pa­ter­nal grand­par­ents, Emily and Ernest, who adopted him. His grand­par­ents were staunch Wes­leyan Methodists who taught him to ques­tion everything; he at­tended the local Wes­leyan Methodist chapel three times every Sun­day, and be­came a lively rugby unionscrum-half. He passed the 11-plus and at­tended Green­hill Gram­mar School, where he met Eng­lish lit­er­a­ture teacher Eve­lyn Ward, who recog­nised his writ­ing and act­ing tal­ent. Be­fore Ken­neth left school, his head­mas­ter J.T. Grif­fith sug­gested that he drop the "s" from his sur­name (an an­gli­ci­sa­tion).

    Grif­fith left school and moved to Cam­bridge in 1937, tak­ing a job at an iron­mon­ger's weigh­ing nails. This lasted only a day, and proved to be the only job he ever had out­side the act­ing world. He ap­proached the Cam­bridge Fes­ti­val The­atre for work, and at the age of 16 was cast by Peter Hoare as Cinna the Poet in a mod­ern-dress ver­sion of Julius Cae­sar. He be­came a reg­u­lar job­bing reper­tory actor, mak­ing his West End the­atre debut in 1938 with a small part in Thomas Dekker's The Shoe­maker's Hol­i­day. Grif­fith vol­un­teered for ser­vice with the Royal Air Force in 1939 be­fore the out­break of the Sec­ond World War. Be­fore train­ing in Canada, he re­turned to see his grand­par­ents in Tenby, who, at his re­quest, gave him a leather-bound copy of Hitler's book, Mein Kampf; he later ex­plained in an in­ter­view that he wanted to un­der­stand what he was fight­ing against.[citation needed] Whilst train­ing in Canada, he caught scar­let fever and was in­valided...

    In 1965, Huw Wel­don and the then di­rec­tor of BBC2, David At­ten­bor­ough, asked Grif­fith if he would like to make a film for the BBC on any sub­ject that he chose. This re­sulted in a se­ries of films on sub­jects as di­verse as the Boer War in Sol­diers of the Widow (BBC tx. 27/5/1967), A Touch of Churchill, A Touch of Hitler (BBC tx. 30/7/1971), the con­tro­ver­sial story of Thomas Paine in The Most Valu­able Eng­lish­man Ever (BBC, tx. 16/1/1982), David Ben-Gu­rion (The Light), Napoleon Bona­parte (The Man on the Rock), Pan­dit Jawa­har­lal Nehru, Roger Case­ment (Heart of Darkness 1992), and on one oc­ca­sion a film com­mis­sioned by Thames Tele­vi­sion on the story of the Three Wise Men of the New Tes­ta­ment, A Fa­mous Journey (ITV tx. 20/12/1979). Grif­fith was ex­pelled from Iran by the coun­try's For­eign Minister.[why?][citation needed] In 1973, Grif­fith made a doc­u­men­tary film about the life and death of Irish mil­i­tary and po­lit­i­cal leader Michael Collins ti­...

    Grif­fith was mar­ried and di­vorced three times, and had five chil­dren: 1. Joan Stock (son: David) 2. Doria Noar (actress/theatre historian Eva Griffith) 3. Carole Haggar (Polly, Huw and Jonathan)

    Grif­fith suf­fered from com­pli­ca­tions as­so­ci­ated with Alzheimer's dis­ease in his later years, re­sult­ing in his re­tire­ment. He died at his home in Lon­don on 25 June 2006, aged 84. He was buried on 4 July 2006. At his re­quest, his cof­fin was dec­o­rated with the flags of Wales, the Un­touch­ables of India (of whose so­ci­ety he was pres­i­dent for many years), Is­rael, and the Irish tri­colour. Grif­fith was in­terred be­side his beloved grand­par­ents (Emily and Ernest) in the church­yard ad­join­ing St Nicholas and St Teilo Church in his na­tive Pe­nally.

    Tenby Mu­seum and Art Gallery in Pem­brokeshire houses an archive of "na­tional im­por­tance" of Grif­fith's pa­pers and doc­u­men­taries, and a cab­i­net con­tain­ing a col­lec­tion of per­sonal mem­o­ra­bilia from his house in Islington.[citation needed]
