    Simon and the whole team were all so wonderful and so supportive during such a difficult time for my family. Every aspect of their service was extremely well organised, but done with such kindness and understanding - gently helping me every step of the way. Nothing was too much trouble. The funeral went so smoothly. Simon gave me a fantastic recommendation for a celebrant. However, the superb support continues after the actual funeral is over. I would thoroughly recommend Crescent Funeral Services

  • 5 Anne Richards 20th Jun 2020

    From my first conversation with Simon I knew that my mum would be in good hands!  He was so helpful and kind throughout the whole process, as was Robert.  On the day everything was perfect and many of the guests commented on how impressed they were with Simon and Crescent. His choice of Emma as celebrant was a great match.  After the service everyone agreed that Mum would approve! One member of the family who has sadly attended many funerals felt that ours was the best and I would not hesitate to recommend Simon and Crescent to anyone

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied
    Dear Anne, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and for allowing us to care for you and the family during this time. It was lovely for us to hear your mother's wonderful life story and we hope that the memories of her will sustain you in the coming months.
  • 5 Joanna Hartholt 17th Jun 2020

    This is the second time I have used the services of Robert and Simon and the help and support they have given me whilst coping with the loss of both my parents has been invaluable. They are outstanding funeral directors and moreover outstanding human beings with such respectfulness, empathy and good humour to guide you through an incredibly difficult time. They were in constant contact with me providing much needed reassurance and I know they will remain available for me to chat or ask advice at any point in the future too. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done and continue to do for me and would highly recommend them to anyone. 

    Robert Helliar-Moore replied
    Dear Joanna, Thank you for your extremely kind words and for taking time to share your thoughts. We feel so privileged to have supported you and for helping to tell your Dad's story. Your thoughtfulness and courage in making the arrangements for his special day were just amazing - you created such a personal, special and unique service that we will never forget. We wish you all well for the coming months and hope that in time, you gain comfort from your precious memories of both your parents. Best Wishes x

  • 5 John McKinley 20th May 2020

    Simon Hellier-Moore and his dedicated team could not have been more helpful, supportive, kind and attentive to our family in our recent family funeral. Simon was able to provide introductions to all of the many different services required to fulfil our funeral wishes. The COVID issue was handled with a certainty which enabled me to plan family and friends' attendance with the webcam facility which offered participation by so many who were unable to attend in person. I wholeheartedly recommend the services of Crescent Funeral Services. My thanks to Simon and his team.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?
