LIL 10 - Reverend Gray

  • Description

    Reverend Robert Gray, Rector of Sunderland from 1819, devoted his fortune and his life to the poor. As the epidemic raged through Sunderland certain people acted as if the epidemic didnt exist, a ball was scheduled for the 18th of Janurary 1832 and the Reverend Gray felt that it was inappropriate given the situation in the town. He died on 11th February 1838 when visiting parishioners during a typhoid fever outbreak and such was the regard for him that 30,000 people attended his funeral
