Cemetery name: Carr Villa Cemetery

Information: Carr Villa Memorial Park
The Launceston City Council owns and operates Launceston's major cemetery and crematorium, Carr Villa Memorial Park. Originally the cemetery grounds were privately owned by the Knight family, and 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.
