"GEORGE FRANCIS GREGORY, whose death occurred on 16th August 1949, in his sixty-eighth year, was formerly borough electrical engineer of Ilford. He received his general education at Bedford County High School, and his technical training at the technical colleges in Leicester, Glasgow, and Darlington. After serving his apprenticeship with the Midland Railway at Leicester, from 1900 to 1903, he was appointed a senior switchboard attendant to the Northampton Electric Light Co.

In 1905 he went to Cambuslang, Scotland, as charge engineer in the electricity works ; and in 1906, in a similar capacity, to Darlington, where he remained for five years. In November 1911 he was appointed charge engineer at the Ilford Electricity Works, becoming mains engineer a year later, chief technical assistant in 1918, and deputy borough electrical engineer in 1923. He was promoted to the post of borough electrical engineer in 1932, and retained that position until his retirement, on account of ill health, in 1946. Mr. Gregory was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1921, and was also a Member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers."
