Born at Ashton-under-Lyne, he studied under Sir Frank Short and Professor Moira at Royal College of Art in South Kensington. He attended Julian's Academy in Paris, training under J P Laurens.
Ray-Jones moved to Carbis Bay in early 1930s and took part in the 'black and white' section of STISA. He worked in the Down Under Studio in St Ives, and died by his own hand.
