It lies in the northern outskirts of the huge Hertzsprung walled-plain, to the southwest of Fersman crater and southeast of Poynting crater. The rim of this crater is generally circular, with a small impact crater intruding into the eastern edge. A small crater fills the northwestern part of the interior floor. ...more on Wikipedia about "Grigg (crater)"
Grimaldi is a large basin located near the western limb of the Moon. It lies to the southwest of the Oceanus Procellarum, and southeast of Riccioli crater. Between Oceanus Procellarum is the Damoiseau crater, and to the north is Lohrmann crater. ...more on Wikipedia about "Grimaldi (crater)"
Grissom is a lunar crater that lies on the far side of the Moon. It is located just to the south of the huge Apollo impact basin, and to the northeast of Cori crater. The rim of this crater is eroded in places, particularly along the northeast where a pair of small craters lie along the sides. There is a clustering of small craterlets located to the south of the crater mid-point. A small crater lies along the northeast edge of the floor. ...more on Wikipedia about "Grissom (crater)"

Grove is a small lunar impact crater that lies in the northern part of the Lacus Somniorum lunar mare. It it located to the southeast of the Mason crater remnant. This is a relatively circular crater formation with a simple, sharp-edged rim. The unconsolidated material along the inner wall has slumped down to the floor, forming a ring around the relatively level base. The floor contains a few tiny impacts, but is otherwise nearly featureless. ...more on Wikipedia about "Grove (crater)"
Gruemberger is an old lunar impact crater in the southern part of the Moon. When viewed from the Earth this crater appears oval in shape due to foreshortening, but it is actually relatively circular. The crater lies about 25 kilometers to the north-northwest of the larger and more prominent Moretus crater. The smaller crater Cysatus is intruding into the eastern rim of Gruemberger. About one and a half crater diameters to the north is the large Clavius walled plain. ...more on Wikipedia about "Gruemberger"
