     Ronald was educated from until 1897 at Marlborough School, Wiltshire. Ronald was a physician in Hindhead, Surrey, from 1905 to 1937. He was resident house surgeon at St Thomas's Hospital, London in 1904-05. Later in 1905 he took up general practice in Hindhead, Surrey and retained that practice until his retirement in 1937.

The following are comments about the day-to-day life of REGG as a rural doctor in England in the early 20th C. The day started with breakfast at 8:15, leaving for work at 8:45 to 9:00. REGG first conducted rounds at the Haselmere Hospital, returning home midmorning for sandwiches made by his wife, Ethel Frampton, The Times and messages. He had no office per se, working out of the hospital and his home instead. REGG was largely on the road with patients generally being seen in their own homes or the hospital. Patients rarely came to REGG's home. REGG periodically telephoned home for messages from Ethel for patients to see and to relay to her is expected immediate whereabouts. In this way she could intercept him with emergencies and could somewhat schedule new patients during the day. Dinner was at 7:45 when REGG would usually be just home.
     Ronald Evelyn Gordon Gray lived at Hindhead, Surrey.
     The marriage of Ronald Evelyn Gordon Gray and Ethel Frampton was registered in England in the March 1906 quarter.
     He served in the RAMC between 1914 and 1919. In France he contracted typhoid. He returned home to convalesce and in 1916 was posted to Salonika to the war's end and on into 1919. His sister-in-law, Dorothy Frampton, served in WW I at the same hospital in Salonika as a nurse. REGG's primary work during WW I was as a surgical specialist. Keen to return home at the end of the war, it was only upon inquiries as to the progress of his army discharge that he learned that the RAMC had held him purposefully for the possibility of western intervention in the Russian Revolution. Upon his request, he was granted a prompt discharge.
In WW II he came temporarily out of retirement to serve at the Haslemere and District Hospital as a surgeon.
     The marriage of Ronald Evelyn Gordon Gray and Violet Harrie Whapham was registered in Southend on Sea RD, Essex, in the December 1947 quarter. There was no issue by this second marriage. Violet was also a medical doctor who practiced in Bedford. After her marriage to REGG she worked part time in the same practice as REGG had prior to his retirement.
     REGG founded and captained the Grayshott Fire Brigade. Control of particularly heath fires became more and more an issue as housing was built into that habitat.
REGG was president of the Hindhead Commons Committee of the National Trust. He volunteered after retirement at the Haslemere Museum overhauling the library catalogue. He was president of the museum's Natural History Society.
As a keen botanist, REGG was vice president of the Heather Society of Great Britain and hosted Society tours of his heather gardens, a practice continued by Violet Whapham after his death. His collection of Cape Heaths was described as the best in the British Isles. He is credited as identifying 2 hitherto unknown species of heather. As protocol dictated, the heathers had to be bred true through 7 generations to ensure the taxonomic characteristics remained. One species was Calluna vulgaris Mrs. Ronald Gray. It was a low growing variant that REGG found near Lands End. The dwarf characteristic turned out to not be merely an expression of the harsh windswept environment of this coastal area; it was genotypically separate to other known heathers.
The other heather was Erica ciliaris Dr. Ronald Gray. This was named by Violet Whapham after REGG. REGG had died before the compulsory 7 generations had been completed. This heather is a white variant of an otherwise pink blooming heather.
     Ronald died on 22 March 1966 in Hindhead, Surrey, aged 85. He was buried in St Mary's, Bramshott, Hampshire.
