In this paper, we investigate the relations between the growth of meromorphic coefficients and that of meromorphic solutions of complex linear differential-difference equations with meromorphic cofficients of finite logarithmic order in the unit disc. Our results can be viewed as the generalization for both the cases of complex linear differential equations and complex linear difference equations.
