Do either of you have the 1939 Register access from FindMyPast?  I wonder if William and Mary Griffiths were still living in Ponkey or vicinity.

Just dabbling, I found an Oswald Griffiths who played football for union and league teams in the 1930's.  I can't find much on-line, but I wondered if he might be the Oswald from this family.

Oswald seems to have been a forename in use in the area around Ruabon in the 19th Century.  I thought it might be uncommon.

We're not allowed to give info from the 1939 register on this forum (also against FindMyPast copyright) but you would be able to get some information about the family for free:

district.
I suggest you look for Oswald first . Use Wrexham R.D. as District/Borough.

Also, see my replies #10 and #12 above.
