On Tuesday, December 16, 2003, the FUNDACIO ROBERT GRAVES was formed.

The Board consists of the Mayor of Deya (President), The President of the Govern de les Illes Balears (vice president), and William Graves as Robert's executor and family representative. The aim of the foundation is to buy Canellun, the house which Robert built in1932 with Laura Riding, and where he lived with Beryl from 1946 to the end of his days. The funding comes from the Govern de les Illes Balears.

The Fundacio Robert Graves plans to make Canellun into a museum open to the public. The ground floor will be as it has always been with Robert's study, the press-room (the Fundacio aims to recover the Crown Albion press), the hall, dining room and kitchen (the AGA will be re-installed). On the first floor will be the bedroom, Laura's study and Beryl's study and an exhibition space. The garden will be replanted to recover the feel it had in the '30s, with plenty of fruit trees, and recovering the paths and benches which were so carefully laid out. The land the theatre is on will remain an olive grove. The museum should open early 2005.

Robert's working library and papers were bequeathed to the St John's Robert Graves Trust by Beryl.
