Thomas Gray Medal nomination

Marine Society

202 Lambeth Road




Established in 1925 the trust honours the memory of Thomas Gray, a senior surveyor for the Board of Trade, who wanted to improve the professionalism of seafarers in the latter half of the 19th century.

The medal recognises deeds of professional merit and was provided by the Royal Society of Arts until 1993 when the funds and management were transferred to the Marine Society. 

Anyone can apply as long as they meet the requirements. If you have any queries please get in touch with us.




The award is in recognition of exceptional deeds of merit at sea and includes services to seafarers in the broadest sense. These deeds can be related to any aspect of seafaring, including saving of lives, the well being of seafarers and any exceptional deeds related to the business of seafaring.

The seafarer must be a resident in the UK for at least three years. 



Supporting seafarers is our strength
