  • 5 Joanna Hartholt 5th Feb 2019

    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. 

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied

I wish you and your family the very best for the future that I know will be filled with such and cherished happy memories.

    These people know you only get one chance to get this right and engage accordingly. From the first phone call and follow-up email my confidence was high.

  • 5 Sandra Cropper 23rd Dec 2018

    Where do we start !  We actually went to another well known and sadly previously used Funeral Directors that we had used for our dad  When we got in there it did feel differently but we coyid not put our finger on it . Eventually things started to change and we found out the company had sold out to a franchisee and they were not really who/what we thought so we decided not too use them (however they had already collected our mum so we needed to get her picked up to the new place that as yet we had not decided)  A message from a friend who knew Crescent Funerals sent us there and all we can say is just thank god for this message coming in our hour of need ! From the moment we walked in to the internment of our mums ashes we have been made to feel that our mum was loved and cared for , was kept safe and comfortable and was treated with the uptmost respect at all times ! In fact when we got there we explained where we thought our mum was and asked them to collect her as quickly as possible which they tried to sort , however unknown to us they had taken mum to a different location without telling us ( this eoykd be why we were told we couldn’t see our mum for two days because they probably had no space for her age eiyjd be shipping her in and out not a thought  we cherished ) it took Simon and his team lots of calls and extra work ( for which they have not charged ) to get mum into their care at the end of the day  Simon was and is the most caring and understanding person in this field , nothing too much trouble nothing that can’t be done , he listened to everything we said ( some of which we don’t even recall ) and he and his team carried out the most beautiful service from start to finish without drama and without changing the goalposts at anytime ! Previously when we used the other director for dad our costs doubled and the service was cold and probably just standard  Our mum was not a cold or standard lady , she was warm , beautiful, bright and loving , the funeral that Simon and his team gave us showcased all of those attributes and more besides , simply amazing service and we would not of got that from anyone else. I feel so so fortunate that we found them , they work with Roger Knight , a celebrant who also is amazing and who gave the best for mum his poem has made us understand “The Garden “ in a whole different meaning , look him up  Robert who assisted the next day in our mums internment was also wonderful, just caring , loving and great attention to detail , again nothing too much trouble  All in all , death is very very very sad , there is never a great time and somehow Xmas makes no difference, however if you find yourself in our shoes you would or could never find a more professional, loving , caring ,compassionate group of people who help you in this sad sad time and make you feel that your loved one and yourselves are all that truly matters ! Simon , Robert , Roger and all the team , to many to name but you know who you are , your all simply the best out there and you make an awful time so much easier to get through  We as a family are eternally grateful and so so pleased the franchise place in Taunton failed us because we found you ! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts xxxxxxxxx❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied
    Dear Sandra and family, How do we begin to express our thanks for such a glowing review? I am so pleased that we were able to meet your needs especially given the heartache you experienced initially. We are so pleased that you feel the service your mother recieved from Crescent Funeral Services were just as she would have wanted and that you are going away from this very sad time feeling content with all that we provided to you. We all wish you happy memories to sustain you through the coming months.

  • 5 Christopher Cronk 28th Nov 2018

    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.

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied
    Dear Chris and family, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and for the very kind words on the services we provided for Richard's Funeral. We wish you all well and the very best for the coming days.

  • 5 Paul Niblett 11th Nov 2018

    Crescent Funeral Services couldn’t have done more for us. We felt at ease the moment we met Simon and felt cared for throughout the whole process. Everything went beautifully smoothly and the day of the cremation was as you would hope fore. From the time the cars turned up to the time we were dropped  off at the wake. I’m my opinion, they went above and beyond to make our day as it should be. I would like to thank Simon and everyone at Crescent Funeral Services for the service they supplied in our sad time.

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied
    Dear Paul, Kay and family, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and for the kind words. We are so pleased we were able to meet your needs and it really was an honour for us to guide you through the arrangements for youre beloved Dad.
  • 5 Joyce Day 20th Oct 2018

    First impressions count, and as soon as we walked into the premises of Crescent Funeral Services Ltd we were warmly welcomed and felt really quite at ease with Simon. He listened to what we wanted and guided us where appropriate. The webcam service from the crematorium was certainly a wonderful suggestion as it allowed family and friends from all around the world to feel part of the funeral service. The respect, support and kindness shown by all of Simon's team throughout the whole process was second to none. We felt Simon went the extra mile by personally bringing Dad's ashes home to us the very next day. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Simon and his wonderful team to you. Entrust your loved one into his care and you can be assured of a highly professional and personal service at all times. Alison Williams Gillian Day-Golt Joyce Day

    Simon Helliar-Moore replied
