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.

Crescent Funeral Services did an amazing job after my Father’s recent passing. I would highly recommend this service to anyone suffering from a bereavement. Simon is a true professional with many years of experience in his work and has a truly kind and friendly manner. Nothing was too much for him and every request was accommodated. 5 Stars for this local business.
