About Us

The Story Of Our Company

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.

Royce Gregory understood the need to relieve grieving families of the details of preparing their homes for the funeral and so many visitors. 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.

Since 2011, the key to Gregory & Carr has been passed onto David Walker, a proud Australian 3rd-generation funeral specialist. As like Royce, David continues to instil in his staff an understanding of the value of courteous service and attention to detail — provided to all families.
