Stan Carr was from a very talented sporting family. Stan Carr’s older brother was Thomas Peter Carr who represented NSW and Queensland in rugby union. After Thomas retired from rugby he became a well-known tennis commentator.

Thomas Carr’s sons (Stan Carr’s nephews) Ernest and Edwin “Slip” Carr both played rugby union for NSW and Australia between 1913 and 1919. Edwin Carr then went on to have a successful athletics career. He was the flag bearer at the 1924 Paris Olympics and competed in the 100 and 200 yards running events.

Edwin’s son, Edwin Junior, competed at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics in the 100 and 200 yards running events as well as the relays.

Stan Carr was a noted rugby union player with the Western Suburbs Club. He played at that Club between 1905 and 1912. In 1913, Stan came across to play rugby league with Wests and made six First Grade appearances. No record has been found of Stan Carr playing grade rugby league after 1913.

Stan Carr died in the Sydney suburb of St Leonards in February 1969.
