Hometown Funeral Care for All Faiths Since 1953

The caring staff of Herman-Taylor Funeral Home will guide your family in creating a unique and meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one.  The Herman family has called Wisconsin Rapids home for over six generations and our funeral home has been locally owned and operated for three generations.  We offer a state of the art facility that features a spacious chapel with a large family and children's room, luncheon facilities, and an on-site crematory.  A ceremony can be anything you wish it to be: simple or elaborate, traditional or unique. No matter how it's tailored, such a ceremony is an important step in recovering from loss.  Our family would consider it an honor and privilege to serve your family.
When we receive words of appreciation from families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss, it warms our hearts, so we want to share the same with you.  At Herman-Taylor Funeral Home, we believe these words speak to our professionalism, compassion, and to the true value of the services we provide.

  • Herman-Taylor Funeral Home is "head and shoulders" above the two competitor funeral homes in Wisconsin Rapids. The other funeral homes are "second class" when comparing knowledge, friendliness, honesty, and facilities. The ease of making the arrangements and the "feels just like home" atmosphere of the funeral home, made this trying time much more pleasant.

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful service. Mom and Dad were great to have this planned and you took over as one of the many Taylors in the funeral business. We are experts, so we know excellence when we see it and feel it first hand. It was a joy to us and everyone who came to celebrate mom's life. All has been greatly appreciated.

  • .......it's just another chance to tell them that it's a blessing and to share with all the good things that happened last week. One is to tell them how you made all the arrangements on Friday, and had the funeral on Monday morning and the burial taking place 75 miles away and even had a viewing at the cemetery for friends and relatives there. Thanks so much Justin. It was really a pleasure meeting you and having you carry on the Taylor tradition of really doing a SUPER job. You were a blessing to all of us.
