Gray took a room in the house opposite his own in Fore Street, Kingsand (Lexden) in order to reduce the risk of infection to his own family (M). The peak of the epidemic was reached in early September and on the fourth of that month, sixteen people, including seven children, were buried in the two churchyards of Maker and Rame.

Gray contracted the disease carrying out his professional duties (T M) and was buried, aged 51, the 111th victim in the two parishes. In all, 116 persons were buried at Maker and 36 at Rame. Thirty were from Millbrook, ninety-three from Kingsand and twenty-one from Cawsand. The last burial was on 12 October.
