About Taunton Crematorium

Taunton Crematorium is on the western side of the town towards Wellington and is easily reached by car and public transport.

It was opened in 1963 and built by a local firm using stone from local quarries.

The Crematorium was presented with a Civic Award in 1965 and became a grade 2 listed building in 1998 because of its special architectural interest.

It is set in landscaped grounds which are carefully tended by our staff. This offers a peaceful place to visit and remember loved ones.

The large chapel can seat 120 people comfortably. Attendance at services can exceed 300 people with standing.

The chapel has a classic pipe organ as well as a modern music and video system. We can also arrange for funerals to be webcast for those friend and family members who cannot attend.

Our chapel area offers a large, bright waiting room and public toilets. More toilets can be found at the exit of the chapel. The office is on site so that we can give help and information when needed.

Our local onsite florist is an independent business, offering flowers for any occasion and grave-side delivery for those who are unable to visit.

At this difficult time, we can at least make choosing, ordering and sending flowers a little easier for you. As seen on our website & our brochure, we have carefully selected some of our beautiful, classic designs from caskets sprays to hearts, posies, crosses and lettering.

Should you require something bespoke or a little out of the ordinary, then we are happy to discuss this with you. Once ordered you can have the peace of mind knowing that the flowers you have chosen will be delivered to the undertakers the morning of the funeral and will play a vital part in saying goodbye to your loved one.

Specialising in luxury floral designs to suit any occasion.
