Why choose Neptune Society?
Neptune Society is the nation’s premier provider of cremation services, serving communities across the U.S. for almost 40 years. We offer personalized, reliable, and affordable solutions for end-of-life needs. Some of our competitors offer cut-rate services, but may not have Neptune Society’s reliability and diligence. Quality of care is important with final needs. Trust Neptune Society to take care of you and your family.
Since the 1980’s, the number of U.S. residents choosing cremation has been on the way up, and all signs point to a continuing rise. That the number of people choosing cremation has been on the rise for three decades is not debated. This is a countrywide trend with every geographic region seeing an increase in the cremation rate.
Specialty cremation urns provide families with unique ways to express their grief and honor their lost loved ones. Whether a family wants to honor their lost loved one’s personality, sports prowess, career, hobbies, or military service – or just wants a beautiful urn to express their love for the deceased – there is a specialty urn option for everyone.
Handling funeral and cremation arrangements is a stressful process for families. Grieving family members must make important decisions with permanent consequences when the deceased has not already made arrangements. Even when the process goes smoothly, it is stressful for the bereaved, but, if there are delays, the funeral process can become a nightmare. Understanding frequent causes of delays in the cremation process helps families avoid these common issues, and helps the cremation process proceed smoothly – reducing stress at a time when family members are already burdened with grief.
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing between cremation and burial: cost, environmental impacts, beliefs, and family wishes are just a few. Learn why you might want to choose cremation.
When an individual or family chooses cremation, one of the first questions that follows is what to do with the remains. Some choose cremation urns or keepsake urns to hold and display the remains. Others start with urns for cremation, and then build memorials around them such as a memorial bench in a beautiful garden or cemetery. Alternately, funeral urns may be skipped entirely in favor of alternate memorial keepsakes including cremation jewelry or pottery.
What is a crematory? At its core, a crematory is a facility where remains are reduced to ashes. However, a crematory can be much more than that. A crematory may include a chapel, a viewing chamber, facilities where families can hold traditional funerals, and may be located at a cemetery or facility where the ashes can be interred. What can you expect from a crematorium?

My mother didn’t wake up on one Friday morning. The nursing home called me very early that day and I rushed to sit with her. Neptune Society had been notified. I was contacted directly by the Neptune Society to give me estimations of their arrival. When the representative arrived she very respectfully and discretely transferred my mother to the gurney. Mother was covered with a beautiful brocade cloth and moved out to an unmarked vehicle equipped to accept and lock the gurney into place. The move of my mother’s body was quick and, I emphasize, respectful.
The next week I was notified when the cremation would take place. A week later I received a call to come to accept mother’s remains and her death certificate. Neptune also contacted the cemetery and, with my input, selected the date of internment.
I was very pleased with the care and service we received. I am very glad, as are our adult children, that my husband and I have our own Neptune Society contracts!

If there were the option for 10 stars, I’d give that as my rating. I don’t even know where to start to express how grateful I am for the amazing services we received from Bracken. He bent over backward to make sure all the necessary paperwork was processed in a very short period of time in order that we could scatter my father’s ashes in Oregon. This included him arranging to have documents hand-carried, over-nighted and in all ways, possible expedited to make sure we could have the memorial on the date and in the location we’d hoped for. And all the while he kept me constantly updated with emails and phone calls. I don’t know that I’ve ever received such care and excellent customer service ever from anyone.

I am new to the cremation world. I recently lost my husband of 18 years who specifically wanted cremation. Every single employee was thoughtful kind and focused on what my family needed. The process when prepaid is exceptionally simple and takes all of the pressure off the survivors. I am so happy my late husband and I chose Neptune Society.

Even though I lived a thousand miles from my late wife, Carolyn Roberson did an excellent job of keeping me informed on my wife’s cremation. Her ashes were quickly mailed to me undamaged. I thank you all for doing a wonderful job.

Neptune Cremation Society had been chosen several years ago, to handle the arrangements for my brother-in-law’s passing. He was in a nursing facility in NJ, and I live in California. When my brother-in-law died, the staff made one phone call, and within a few hours, I had a call from Alvin Chan that put my mind at ease. Being so far away was difficult, but Mr. Chan was so compassionate and professional. He answered all my questions, made appropriate suggestions when necessary, and made a difficult time easier than I could have expected.

I could not imagine more professional, efficient or compassionate help when dealing with the recent loss of a friend who’d asked me to take care of their final arrangements. Starting with only a phone number for me to call, Alvin Chan was helpful in every way, and above and beyond with every step of my friend’s journey, from his home, and now on toward his final resting place. The attendants who came to help my friend start his journey from his home were dedicated, caring, respectful and always conscious of both my friend and myself. From there, all the paperwork was made simple for me and easy to accomplish. Everything was carefully explained, all while keeping in mind the emotional impact such details contained. Thank you.

This is the kind of service you rarely come by- it really makes a huge impact when you are going through loss. Allyse was super- so communicative and reassuring during every step in the process. She has a calm and peace about her that just gives you a sense of comfort. We are grateful for every way that Neptune made this process easier to get through. We have seen the worth of having a plan in place for our families and more than that, having people and a place of worth that will be sincere and compassionate in the worst of times. Thank you Allyse for your true customer care throughout, your calls and communication about everything were truly appreciated. Because of you, Neptune has already been recommended to those around us!

When we made our arrangements with Neptune several years ago, we knew that our satisfaction would only be realized once one of us passed away. I have no regrets. Neptune was professional and considerate after my husband passed and my family was glad we had chosen this as we grieved the loss of husband, father, and grandfather.
