Guide to Funeral Directors in Taunton

The historic county town of Somerset, Taunton rose to importance during medieval times. Famous for its cider production, the town and surrounding area (a region known as Taunton Deane) are increasingly popular, with continuing population growth predicted in the next few years.

There are 11 funeral directors in the Taunton area, serving a population of about 64,000. National chains are represented amongst them, as are independent firms and small family-run businesses, all with supportive local knowledge.

Over 60 per cent of the people living in Taunton identify as Christian. The town has over 21 churches. These include the historic Unitarian church on Mary Street, famous for having welcomed the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge as a guest preacher. A further 25 per cent of people living in the region state that they are non-religious, meaning that funeral directors in Taunton are experienced in providing both secular and Humanist services and can offer sympathetic advice regarding these.

Taunton Deane Crematorium on the outskirts of the town serves the region for burials and cremations. In addition there are three further cemeteries locally: Wellington Cemetery at Wellington, St James Cemetery and St Mary’s Cemetery, both within Taunton itself.

From meeting Simon and conversing with Robert and James, we as a family, knew that we would receive OUTSTANDING service and we were not let down.  Nothing was to much trouble for all of them.  Our heartfelt thanks go to all of them for allowing our Mum  to move on with great dignity.

Attention to detail and 'going the extra mile ' immediately spring to mind. We had complete confidence in all the staff that mum's wishes would be granted. She would have been delighted. As a family our ideas were treated with respect and all our plans came to fruition. No compromise whatsoever.

The attention to detail by Crescent Funeral Services is extraordinary. Simon is exceptionally sensitive and empathetic, making sure that the whole family felt support and comfort throughout. Nothing is too much trouble, all the staff are courteous and discreet. The whole team seemed united in making everything perfect for us, in the circumstances. We felt throughout that we were the only thing on Simon's mind.
