Road map

Travelling from the South

If travelling from the South leave the M5 at junction 26 (Wellington) and head for Taunton on the A38. After 15 minutes or so and a left hand bend that leads down a long incline to a major roundabout, the large stone cross of the Crematorium will be seen on the right hand side.


Travelling from the West

If travelling from the West, the B3227 and A 358 join at the Cross Keys roundabout. Follow the signs for Wellington and the A38. You should be on Silk Mills road and pass Aviary Nurseries on the right hand side. At the first big roundabout where you join the A38 for Wellington, turn right and the Crematorium is almost immediately on the left, as the road rises.


Travelling from the North

If travelling from the North, follow the signs for Wellington and the A38 through town, leaving Somerset College on the right hand side. After a couple of petrol stations on the left there is a major roundabout and the road rises ahead. Go straight across and the Crematorium is almost immediately on the left.
