Health Protection regulations have come into force requiring the closure of crematoria to the general public except for those mourners attending pre-arranged services.
The Taunton Crematorium remains open for pre-arranged services and is staffed but we ask that contact with the office is made by phone or email not face to face.
We continue to conduct services and are asking for reduced attendances with a maximum of 25 people.
All our cemeteries remain open at this time in line with Government advice and we ask visitors to observe the appropriate social distancing.
Please note the cemetery at the Taunton Crematorium is open to the public with some restrictions in place while works are being undertaken.
Please contact us with any enquiries you have about our cemeteries or crematorium:
- email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- phone us on 01823 356381
- write to us: Cemeteries and Crematorium Office, Wellington New Road, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 5NE
