Thomas Cecil Gray, CBE, KCSG, was a pioneering British anaesthetist. He was born in Liverpool in 1913 and educated at Ampleforth College in Yorkshire. At the age of 18, he joined the order of monks at the Benedictine college of Ampleforth, but after two months it became clear that this was not the vocation for him and he returned to Liverpool to pursue medicine, qualifying in 1937. He began a career in General Practice, giving anaesthetics for his patients when they needed surgery.
