George Gordon Fraser (1859–1895) showed great promise as an illustrator. His drawings and cartoons appeared in Fun magazine and he provided "upwards of one hundred and twenty illustrations" for an 1891 edition of Jerome K. Jerome's The Dairy of a Pilgrimage. A reprinted version of this is still available though fails to credit G.G. Fraser as the artist. He also painted, in watercolours and occasionally in oils, signing 'G. Gordon Fraser' or using his initials. William Andrew Baird Grove, in his booklet ‘The Frasers - A Local Family of Artists’ (1980) describes George Gordon’s work as - “a wide variety of Fen scenes of painstaking detail and accuracy, no longer fashionable in today’s art. His brushwork was very fine and it appears that every single twig and every leaf is given individual attention.” There are noticeably fewer examples of his work in circulation as he died young, at the age of 35, having fallen through the ice while skating on the River Ouse. He was buried with his father in a secluded spot in the graveyard of St. James’s Church, Hemingford Grey, a village between Huntingdon and St Ives, Cambridgeshire.
