About Us A Truly Independent Funeral Service for Taunton and surrounding communities. Offering a complete and inclusive service from Simon Helliar-Moore - supporting families since 1994.
Burial Service Burial is a very traditional and permanent way of remembering a loved one. Whether in a churchyard or cemetery, you are able to know that the physical remains rest beneath the ground and that your chosen memorial stone marks the exact spot for you to pay your respects.
Cremation service Many family's choose to have a service at the crematorium. A service at the crematorium Chapel can be a service to suit individual requirements and will last between 20 minutes to one hour, depending on the service contents.
The Crescent Way Funeral Service A complete and personal Funeral Service including our professional attention to you and your family. Use of our dedicated chapel of rest during office hours, Monday to Friday 9am-4pm. Provision of our Holway coffin - a traditional Elm effect coffin with fittings suitable for cremation. Provision of the hearse and staff for conveyance to the crematorium. External payments, including Crematorium, medical certificates and officiant of your choosing.
With the ever growing awareness of environmental matters, families are now looking for a more natural, nature friendly option when considering a burial.
Whether the body is taken for burial in a woodland or cremated remains are being buried in a meadow, there are many options available to allow for a greener, more sustainable service.
The Crescent Direct Service
For some, gathering at a crematorium or church and holding a service to remember their loved one is not always a desired option or it was the person who has died that expressed a wish that they did not want a formal funeral service.
At Crescent Funeral Services we understand this and therefore, offer the low-key option of a direct cremation.
The Crescent Direct service will provide a family with our professional services at the time of death or conveyance from the mortuary and will simply arrange for a coffin to transfer their loved one directly to the crematorium, without ceremony or fuss, but respectfully and in keeping with the required regulations.

"I would just like to pass on my sincerest thanks to Crescent Funeral Services especially to Jason for all his kindness and compassion. They were extremely professional, kind and helpful at this very upsetting time and it was very much appreciated by us all. Thank you once again."

"Thank you so very much for the love and care you gave to John while he was in your care and for allowing us as a family to be able to do all of the things we wanted to do for us to remember him. This was a great comfort to us at this very sad time.
The love and care you gave would never have been given to us by anybody else in the funeral service -we will always remember this-you are like family."

"Having been advised to get prices from a range of Funeral Directors, I was amazed by how reasonable Crescent Funeral Services were, compared to the other local funeral directors.
Saying that, from first contact, I knew this was a family orientated company and the service was outstanding.
I will highly recommend Crescent Funeral Services."
