There was a funeral for Charles Taylor Fleming on 25 May 1937. The Orange Leader newspaper reported: "The esteem in which the late Charles Taylor Fleming was held was eloquently testified by the huge gathering, thoroughly representative of practically all phases of public life, with so many of which he had been intimately associated, at the funeral yesterday afternoon.
"The cortege was several blocks in length, and was preceded by marchers who comprised: Brothers of Court Little John Ancient Order of Foresters, headed by Chief Ranger, Bro J Bashford, and numbering about 50; members of the Orange Bowling and Civic Club, and shire and municipal employees."
"In a short address in the church, Rev. Mills said that a poet had well said that 'man dies, but sorrow never dies'".
"'A man who takes a public part in the life of a community has a great strain upon his nervous system and his strength,' said Mr Mills. 'I have been struck sometimes by the early demise of men in public life. It is the price we pay for the work of God we do in the great economy of the thing.'"
"The service closed with the singing of 'Abide With Me,' which had been requested, and the funeral then took place."
"After the burial service was conducted by the Rev Mills, Bro. E H Allen, P C R, on behalf of the Chief Ranger, Bro. J Bashford, read the funeral oration of the Foresters' Lodge."
