Our History

David Gregory & David Walker
David Gregory & David Walker

When Royce Gregory founded Gregory & Carr in 1954, he changed the way people thought about a funeral service. At the time, most funerals were conducted in private homes, but Sydney was becoming a city where people required quality service and a funeral services provider with integrity.

Royce Gregory understood the need to relieve grieving families of the details of preparing their homes for the funeral and so many visitors. His funeral home would answer that need. On that premise, Royce Gregory founded what was then known as a “Funeral Home and Chapel”.

Over the years Gregory & Carr Funerals have had the privilege of serving many Heads of State, Members of the arts and entertainment world and families from all walks of life. We cater for all backgrounds, honouring the deceased and comforting their families.

Since 2014, the key to Gregory & Carr has been passed onto David Walker, a proud Australian 3rd-generation funeral specialist. As like Royce, David continues to instill in his staff an understanding of the value of courteous service and attention to detail — provided to all families. This integrity remains our core principle.
