Services, Fees and Maps

Carr Villa Memorial Park is Launceston's major cemetery and crematorium. The site is owned and operated by Council. 

Originally the cemetery grounds were privately owned by the Knight family. In the mid-1800s, a small college and boarding school known as the Carr Villa Establishment for Young Ladies was based there.

The Council purchased the land in 1881 and opened a public burial ground to be known as Carr Villa in 1905. The crematorium and chapel were built in 1938 and the first cremation was in February 1939.


Memorial plaque arrangements are by appointment only. This enables us to have employees available to provide personalised attention in the privacy of our meeting room. Please call us to arrange a meeting.
