Our Professional Fees for the Crescent Simple Way Service: £1,299         Third Party Fees*: £1,151        Total Inclusive Cost: £2,450


If you do not require a Minister or Celebrant or would like our Funeral Director or a family member to lead the Service, the inclusive cost with a weekday service at Taunton Dean Crematorium Chapel at 9:00am or 9:30am will be £2,000

Services such as Floral tributes and newspaper announcements are very personal choices that a family can make and is why we do not include them in our inclusive services above.

From a single red rose to an elaborate coffin spray, a simple line of thanks or full obituary, we are here to guide you through these decisions, helping you to create a service as unique as your loved one.

Please complete our contact form to ask us for more information about these services, including examples and associated cost.

Medical Certificates are not required in certain circumstances, such as burial services, and will not be charged in these cases. These fees are set independently by the third party and may be subject to charge.
