Marr 2 July 1907 in St Stephens C of E, Richmond, Victoria, Australia (Vic reg 5427R) to John Burton GRIERSON, born 26 July 1875, Church Street, Richmond, Vic (Vic reg 18753), occupation compositor.
They lived at 2 Elm Grove, Richmond until probably 1927-28, and purchased and moved to 9 Fenwick Street Kew to live there for the rest of their lives.

Reasons for moving from Richmond to Kew are described in the following comment from JDG 2015:
" I don't think the social world was a major factor, the choice was either Melbourne Grammar or Scotch because tuition at Christ Church didn't go beyond what we now know as year 8. There certainly was a desire to keep away from the government schools in the Richmond area. Remember that Dad went to a "Dame's School" before Christ Church. His explanation for the rationale for the move to Kew was to get away from Squizzy Taylor and the gangs that were making Richmond life pretty unbearable. Scotch was chosen largely because one of the neighbours, Johnny Ham (of the early Baptist family) who was a year ahead of Dad, but a friend, had been sent to Scotch, and strongly recommended it at the Griersons place in Elm Grove when visiting. I have no doubt that JB's ancestral aspects added to the motivation. The Hams lived in Church St a little up the hill and on the other (St Stephens) side. Most of the Ham boys went to Scotch, some cousins went to Grammar. Richmond Hill was, of course, the South Yarra of its day."

John died 12 Jan 1957, Fitzroy (Vic reg 1078 of 1957), buried Boroondara Cem, Kew, Vic.
Margaret died 18 May 1968, Kew (Vic reg 10820), aged 92, on her birthday.
