Description

Carr Villa Memorial Park is the largest cemetery in the Tasmanian city of Launceston. It features an impressive Entrance Chapel built in 1938 in the Gothic Revival style. The red brick building has pointed arch doorways and windows, buttresses, and blind lancet windows above the large front and rear pointed arch entrances. It is topped by a square tower and spire. These photographs shows the rear of the building and the vaulted timber ceiling. As can be seen in the photograph of the rear, the building acts as a large entrance through which funeral processions can pass.
