We have to record, with deep regret, the decease of this gentleman, which occurred on Tuesday afternoon, an event for which his wide circle of friends were unhappily prepared, through the lengthened illness under which Mr. Fielder had gradually sunk.


There have been perhaps few men more thoroughly identified with the trade of the town than he has been, his business relations having extended to three, or four distinct trades, in each of which the firm with which he was connected has occupied a leading position.


In public affairs also Mr. Barron Fielder has ever been ready to take his share of work. For some years he was a member of the Corporation, and the Horticultural Society owes much to his energy on its behalf.


In his private relations he was ever especially genial and warm-hearted, securing in life the warm esteem and the affectionate regard of those by whom he was surrounded.


Newbury Weekly News – 16/02/1882





The funeral of this deceased gentleman took place on Saturday last at the Cemetery. An intimation had been conveyed to the family of the wish of the officers and members of the Loyal Berkshire Lodge of Hope – of which deceased was a Past Master, as well as being a Past Provincial Grand Senior Warden of Berks and Bucks – to attend and to supplement the usual funeral service with Masonic rites. Whilst appreciating the fraternal feelings which prompted this desire the survivors thought it would be more in accord with what they felt would have been the sentiments of the deceased for the funeral to be carried out in a simple manner, and the offer was respectfully declined.


A large number of Freemasons and personal friends however met at the Cemetery gates, and the body having passed between them, these gentlemen, together with those in the employ of the deceased, closed their ranks and formed part of the funeral cortége.


The service in the chapel (used for the funerals of the Established Church), was read by the Rector, the Rev. E.I. Gardiner. Passing out of the gates, and proceeding along the Newtown-road the body was borne through the upper gate of the unconsecrated portion to the family vault, and the corpse was placed therein, making the sixth interment.


The service at the grave was also read by the Rector. The coffin bore the following inscription:-


Barron Fielder

Died 14th February 1882

Aged 48 years.
