Fraser, William (1845–1911)

from National Advocate (Bathurst, NSW)

The funeral of the late Mr. William Fraser took place on Monday afternoon, and was largely attended, the remains being interred in the Congregational portion of the Bathurst cemetery. The deceased, who was 68 years of age, was a native of Windsor. He was engaged in storekeeping at Bathurst 3o years ago, and subsequently took up his residence at Orange. Of late years he had resided in Sydney, and returned to Bathurst about seven months ago owing to ill-health. Amongst the bereaved relatives are four sons and four daughters, all of whom are married. The late Mr. Fraser took a keen interest in the rabbit trade, and was the first to export rabbits on a large scale. The burial service was conducted by the Rev. J. Marshall Brown, and the mortuary arrangements were in the hands of Mr. W. Boyd.
