Frederick Wilson Uther (1834–1908)

The death took place on Wednesday at Strathfield of Mr. Frederick Wilson Uther at the age of 74 years. Mr. Uther was a partner of Messrs. Fraser, Uther, and Co., one of the oldest auctioneering firms in the city. Before he became associated with the Sydney firm, nearly 30 years ago, he was with the Melbourne branch of Messrs. Fraser and Co. His loss will be regretted not only by a large circle of commercial friends, but also by the Church of England community, with whom he had been identified as a member of the Cathedral Chapter and the Diocesan Synod. He was one of the Synod nominators, and represented the district of Wingacarribee. The deceased took a prominent part in the promotion of religious instruction in Public schools, and was a member of the council of the Church of England Grammar School, North Sydney. Mr. Uther, who died at an advanced age, leaves four sons and two daughters, the oldest son being Mr. A. H. Uther, of the Crown Law Office. The funeral will leave Wood's Mortuary Chapel at half-past 2 to-day for the Gore Hill Cemetery. Mr. Uther's late residence was Brenchley, Lavender Bay.
