Business overview

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

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

Crescent Funeral Services can offer inclusive service options which start with our Direct Cremation Service for a fixed price of £1150.

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.

Kindness and thoughtfulness in abundance

Losing a loved one recently Simon and his team were recommended to us. We cannot praise them high enough for their kindness, compassion and understanding in everything they did. They were always only a phone call away with help and advice. Simon we want to say a heartfelt thank you for all you did.

Couldn’t have coped without them

This is the second time I have used the services of Robert and Simon and the help and support they have given me whilst coping with the loss of both my parents has been invaluable. They are outstanding funeral directors and moreover outstanding human beings with such respectfulness, empathy and good humour to guide you through an incredibly difficult time. They were in constant contact with me providing much needed reassurance and I know they will remain available for me to chat or ask advice at any point in the future too. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done and continue to do for me and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Outstandingly kind and professional service

5
My husband of 32 years recently passed away and I was blown away with the personal, professional and dedicated approach from Crescent funeral services. James in particular was reliable, understanding and most importantly kind. He took each step with me and ensured I was comfortable and supported through everything. I couldn’t have asked for any one or company to have done anymore for me and my family. They recommended and helped me with every detail; flowers, crematorium, wake venue and travel services. Thank you so much, this process could have been really distressing but it was so reassuring to have someone with me every step of the way.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts. It was our pleasure to help you through such a time and we are thankful we were able to help you. John was a big part of my life and it was my honour to not only be there for you but give John the send off I personally know he deserved. James

Team counldn't be more helpful

5
Having to choose a funeral director in an area that is unknown to you can lead to a very hit and miss choice. After reading reviews for the local directors, our choice was made simply by looking at previous reviews. I have to say that I am sure that we couldn't have made a better one. From my very first phone call, Simon and Robert couldn't have been more caring and they sorted everything with minimal fuss which was very important during the stressful time of dealing with our mother's death. The day of the funeral was dealt with very respectfully and the team couldn't have been more helpful. I am so glad that we chose Crescent Funeral Services and would highly recommend them. Thank you so much.
