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 the moment we met with Crescent Funeral Services they were helpful and compassionat with arranging a perfect service for our mum. They helped us find a Celebrate who was amazing, a florist who made a beautiful arrangement all at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend them.

We were so pleased to find a funeral director that offered the service we were looking for, simple but respectful. Communications were calmly delivered, every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were kept informed of everything and we felt very supported . Robert has the perfect manner sensitive, thorough, patient and kind. Nothing could be improved upon in our eyes and we wish to tgank hi

I can’t recommend Crescent highly enough. They made an extremely sad and stressful period a lot less painful with the time, kindness and care they afforded me. Never too busy to sit and have a chat with me, always replied to my emails promptly and did their utmost to answer all my queries and accommodate all my requests. So impressed by their flexibility, attention to detail and professionalism. Their passion for their work and dedication to both the deceased and their loved ones is evident. Thank you all so much.
