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 was a fantastic support mechanism throughout the whole time period before during and after the cremation. Every time we contacted the Cresent we had the correct answer within minutes . I would thoroughly recommend The Crescent.

Where to start? Simon and team were wonderful from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always there for me, day or night. They were sympathetic and compassionate without being cloying - and highly professional. Simon always allowed me to lead, but was equally ready with suggestions if I needed help. If I have omitted mention of anything, it is my lack, not theirs. They turned a bleak time into one of joy, hope and humour.
