Gregg was hailed as a hero of the Munich air disaster on February 6, 1958, in which 23 people were killed. He was a survivor and twice returned to the burning fuselage to drag team-mates and strangers to safety.
He rescued United team-mates Charlton and Dennis Viollet from the BEA Flight 609, as well as a 20-month-old baby and her badly injured, pregnant mother.
In nine years at United, Gregg played 247 times, including, incredibly, a 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday just 13 days after the Munich tragedy.
Charlton said in a statement on United's website: "Lady Norma and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Harry Gregg.
"I was proud to call him a team-mate. For all the matter of fact things Harry said about that night in Munich, for me, he will always be remembered as a heroic figure. It's incredible to think that he went on to play in a match against Sheffield Wednesday just 13 days after that tragic night.
