On commissioning Tay was allocated for service as a convoy escort in the Western Approaches and the Atlantic.[1]

In June 1943 she was allocated for service in the Eastern Fleet, operating in the Indian Ocean. At the end of the war she remained based at Singapore, until returning to the UK in 1947 where she was paid off and reduced to reserve. She was placed on the disposal list in 1956 and was towed to the breakers yard at Rosyth on 26 September 1956.
