Cremation: Detroit, MI
Detroit cremation planning is best done in advance, when decisions are made without the immediacy or stress of a death in the family. Neptune Society Detroit staff can clearly answer your questions about cremation and our services. Cremation continues to rise in popularity in Detroit due to its low cost, minimal land use, and flexibility. If you believe cremation may be right for you or a loved one, please call or complete the form on the right for more information.
We find many Detroit residents feel a great burden has been lifted from their shoulders by pre-planning, having peace of mind knowing their final needs are met and their family will not be burdened with arrangements. A preplanned cremation also gives families the opportunity to pay today’s price for cremation for a future service, avoiding future cost increases.
