George Gregory was a marine painter, the son of the artist Charles Gregory. George inherited his father’s talent and zeal for seascapes. It is said that George Gregory was asked to teach Queen Victoria’s children to paint when they were staying at Osborne House, but he either declined the honour or gave up the task after a few lessons.

Although quite a prolific artist, he is not known to have exhibited during his lifetime. His main working period seems to date between 1870 and 1910, but he is said to have continued painting up to about 1925.

His father Charles is buried in plot F1261
