After leaving Hartley College, where he trained as a Primitive Methodist Minister, Rowland Spray started his ministry in Faringdon in 1913. He moved to Aldershot in 1914 at the outbreak of the First World War. His ministry with the soldiers here led him to become a Chaplain with the Armed Forces, serving in India and Mesopotamia.
Later on, during the Second World War he became an RAF Chaplain.
