Why Choose Crescent Funeral Services?

Crescent Funeral Services - Front


A Truly Independent Family Funeral Service in Taunton, Somerset and surrounding communities. Offering a complete and inclusive service from Simon Helliar-Moore - supporting families in Somerset since 1994.

With over twenty years’ experience in caring for the bereaved, Simon and his team at Crescent Funeral Services offer a wealth of knowledge in helping their families at a very difficult time.

Crescent Funeral Services can offer inclusive and affordable service options which start with our Direct Cremation Service for a fixed price of £1300.

A bespoke and tailored Funeral Service is also offered, as well as Funeral Plans from both Golden Leaves and Golden Charter, helping to take away the worry of any future rise in funeral costs.

Working with our families, we ensure that their wishes are transformed in to a Funeral Service that represents a true reflection of their loved one.

Crescent Funeral Services were awarded accreditation by the Good Funeral Guide and delighted to have been awarded Runner Up in the ‘Best New Funeral Director’ category in the 2017 Good Funeral Awards.

Offering an open, relaxed and friendly approach, Simon and his team pride themselves on providing an independent, transparent and trustworthy service. Every member of staff has been a part of the local community in the Taunton area for many years and are proud to be providing their town with a service they can trust.

Our Funeral Home has a space designed for our families to come and spend time with their loved one on the days leading up to the Funeral Service. This space has been dedicated and blessed by local clergy from a mixture of faiths but is equally a place of tranquillity and reflection for those who do not wish for a faith led service.

Our Funeral Home is proud to be able to offer a warm welcome to our disabled clients with all our facilities being situated on the ground floor.

For more details or if you wish to visit the Funeral Home, please contact Crescent Funeral Services where Simon, Robert and James will be happy to help you or invite you in for a chat over coffee.

It has been said that like the Crescent Moon, Crescent Funeral Services are a gentle guiding light in the darkness of times.
