Commemorates police orphan Frederick Griffiths.

Frederick Griffiths was only 16 when he died in late 1922, a fortnight after arriving in Melbourne from London with eight other Metropolitan and City Police orphans. His father had been a London policeman who was killed during World War One.  

Griffiths migrated at the invitation and sponsorship of Victorian police, but his new life was short-lived. He injured his knee during the voyage, and died of medical complications in January 1923.
