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.

Thank you so much. I cannot reccomend nor praise you enough. From the moment I called to now the care I received was second to none , always at the end of a phone to answer questions and went above and beyond to help with our wishes for our daughter. So thank you.

Firstly, a very sincere thank you to Simon and the team at Crescent Funerals. We were treated with great respect and nothing was too much trouble. We received good communication by way of email and phone. Setting the wheels in motion was very simple. We didn’t have to pay a deposit upfront, which was a big plus when the family finances are still to be sorted out. The service went off exactly as planned and our loved one received the send off he deserved. When the need for funeral services arise again I would not hesitate to use Crescent again and whole heartedly recommend them.
