There are just no words to describe how grateful I am to the Neptune Society and especially Russell Lavender for helping me through this very difficult time.
Neptune Society offers a variety of free resources to those looking for more information about cremation planning and cremation services. Check out some of the resources we provide below.
Cremation planning, industry jargon, costs and forms… it can all seem overwhelming. That’s why James Baron, a licensed funeral director of nearly 30 years, will be tackling all of your questions and concerns in the Ask a Funeral Director series! Be sure to let us know what you think. We want to breakdown this process, and allow everyone to be comfortable and knowledgeable in their cremation planning. So be sure to submit ANY questions you have!
12 Weeks of Peace is a free online bereavement program, available to anyone that needs a helping hand through their grief. It is available in the form of an email series in which subscribers will receive one email per week containing seven “days” of content. We have worked to create a valuable resource you can refer to during this difficult time. Signing up is easy. Simply type your email address in the form on this page and the emails will begin once a week for 12 weeks.
We understand that it can be extremely difficult to think of your own mortality, much less talk about it. However, as difficult as it may be to talk to your loved ones about your final wishes we have found that making your wishes known in advance is much easier than leaving the decision up to your loved ones at the time of need. This guide will help steer you in the right direction as you began the process of preplanning.
