Clean and oil grill grates. Heat grill to high. Place pound cake slices on grates and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Watch to make sure they do not burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
For whipping cream, add cream, sugar, and vanilla to medium bowl. Beat until mixture develops soft peaks. This can be made ahead of time and stored in refrigerator. Place a generous dollop onto each slice of pound cake, arrange berries and top with grated chocolate.
