Gamble was educated at Oriel College, Oxford [7] and ordained in 1885.

He died in post.[17]

In 1906 he was elected to Chelsea Borough Council as a Municipal Reform Party councillor representing Royal Hospital Ward.[18] He served as Mayor of Chelsea in 1908–09, and was re-elected to the council for a second three-year term in 1909.[19] [20]
