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.

Simon and his team at The Crescent could not have  made our whole experience any better, from the first meeting through to the final journey these guys attention to detail was impeccable  The Waddon’s

We first visited Crescent, and met Simon, when we knew we would need the services of a funeral director due to a life limiting diagnosis for our parent. We wanted to be sure we chose the most suitable service for us. Our priorities were to find a local, independent business that we felt comfortable with. Crescent met all of our best hopes and more. The environment is fresh and modern, light and bright. It is stylish and clean, and feels very comfortable and welcoming. Whilst we mainly worked with Simon, Robert and James also played an important part in looking after Mum and the family. From weekend calls working out urn delivery, to recommending a celebrant, to dealing with some complicated (to us!) travel arrangements, to supporting and welcoming attendees at the service, I cannot fault the service we received. Whilst I did meet with other services in Taunton before finalising our choice, and found all the people I met to be helpful, there was such a warmth and sense of welcome at Crescent. Mum would have enjoyed meeting the Crescent trio, and would have appreciated the decor and standards of service. I know she would also have been pleased to support a business that invests in apprenticeships as Crescent has done. I would not hesitate to recommend Crescent to friends and family should the sad need arise.

Robert is a very understanding warm hearted man and made us feel at ease throughout the process or arranging everything for our fathers cremation. He made it all very clear and it was very simple and organised which made things easier for us in a time when it's hard to do things. Thank you Robert once again.

From start to finish Crescent Funeral Services were excellent in helping to arrange the funeral of my grandmother. Robert, was our dedicated representative and from our first meeting he couldn't do enough, talking us through the whole process and making helpful suggestions on things that we might not thought about. Thank you for making it a smooth process at what is a very hard time for family and loved ones.
