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, whom I have known for many years, dealt with Jeff's funeral with great sensitivity in a difficult situation.  He was incredibly helpful and the service provided by him and all his team was superb - respectful and dignified.  The Jaguar hearse was a crowning glory to their service - something which Jeff would have greatly appreciated. I can wholeheartedly recommend Simon and Crescent Funeral Services to anyone suffering a bereavement, and am confident that their high standards of service will be reassuring and comforting.

The team at Crescent displayed the highest levels of professionalism, compassion and we could not thank them enough for taking care of Grandad on his final journey. Everything was handled exactly as we hoped it would be and the reassurance and service we received from start to finish were second to none. Simon and the team were very reassuring and caring, which put all family members minds at rest, knowing everything has been taken care of and Grandad would have the send off he deserved.  A big BIG Thank you to Simon and the team.
