Memorials and Placement of Ashes

Back side of Carr Villa Main entrance Archway, Hedges and Trees


Memorialisation and pre-purchase arrangements are by appointment only, which allows us to meet privately with friends or family to discuss their wishes. 

Only funeral directors, the applicant for cremation, the Trustee or a person with written authority from any of these persons mentioned will be permitted to collect or make arrangements for the placement of cremated remains and plaques. 

Please note placements and reservations cannot be finalised, or plaques ordered, until payment has been received in full. 

Below is information about Carr Villa's sites for memorials and placement of ashes. See the maps of Carr Villa for more detail. 


An accessible area, Claygrove has rock-walled gardens and paved pathways plus flowering deciduous trees, camellias and carpet roses.
