I have dealt with the Palm Harbor office and Kathleen ** twice this year. I could not ask for better service or compassion than what Kathy has shown to me. Always very professional and open to helping even after all of the arrangements are taken care of. I know I can call anytime for advice or help. A wonderful group of people and I cannot thank the Neptune Society enough for being there for me.

The experience of losing my wife was devastating. My experience with Neptune Society was fortunately exactly what I signed up for so many years ago.

All of my questions were answered in a straightforward manner. Subsequent inquiries were handled likewise promptly.

I would highly recommend this individual and the organization that she skillfully represents to any and all who may feel the need for informative decisions that are required for an end of life plan that gives me total peace of mind. Thank You very much.

I attended a seminar back in Jan. 2017 for the Neptune Society and I was very impressed by everything that was said.  At the time, I bought the plan for myself.  When I went home and told my mother, she said to sign her up too.  Unfortunately, she passed away in April in the ICU.  The Neptune Society was caring and made sure everything went smoothly.  Two days later I went in the office to sign some papers.  Everything I ordered was done promptly and efficiently.  Alexis,Garcia, was extremely helpful.  I’m glad I’m giving my daughter peace of mind by having all my arrangements prearranged.  I highly recommend them.

I returned to Neptune Society services when my Mom recently passed. I believe I worked with Trina (forgive me if I have forgotten name). Neptune Society had been so good with me when my Dad passed 10 years before. I plan to pre-arrange for my own cremains with Neptune Society so that my children will be the recipients of their tender care.

The Neptune Society has provided outstanding service from when they first came to our home and we purchased services years ago to when my husband died in July of 2017 and beyond. Samantha Giesler of the Palm Harbor, FL office has been professional, compassionate and tactful each and every time I’ve spoken with her. She has walked me through every step and given me a heads up when necessary. I don’t know what I would have done without her. I have recommend Neptune Society’s services to many of my friends and will continue to do so. You provide a very valuable service and do it outstandingly well. Thank you!!

I’m grateful for the upmost professional staff at this location with the care they provided for my father’s death to the gentle manner in which they care for our family during this time. In addition to handling all of the cremation details, the director ensured that my mother received an American flag for my father’s reserve service many years ago.

This is a review of the Neptune Society and, in particular, Ms. Alia Smith-Acala, who is an independent sales representative for this exceptional organization.  Recently, suffering from an acute rare sense of responsibility, I contacted the Neptune Society to investigate certain end-of-life services, and was promptly directed to Ms. Smith-Acala.  My initial contact with Ms. Smith-Acala was very positive, and during our brief conversation we set up an appointment to discuss the Neptune Society’s breath of services.  Ms. Smith-Acala generously offered to conduct this appointment at my townhouse, a convenience for me, but which also immediately established an environment of considerable comfort for me surrounding this delicate topic right from the start, knowing we could conduct this confidential interview in the security and privacy of my home.  Ms. Smith-Acala was first of all punctual, and she successfully created an air of cordial professionalism and warmth, while immediately conveying a genuine concern for me regarding the subject of our meeting.  Ms. Smith-Acala then carefully explained to me the nature and extent of Neptune Society’s end-of-life services, and patiently and thoroughly answered all of my questions.  At the conclusion of our interview, I had already made a considered decision, and selected the right options for me, all with the guidance and help of Ms. Smith-Acala.  I then experienced an overwhelming sense of positive relief and satisfaction at the prospect of having this matter settled.  I realize this end-of-life topic is difficult for many people, as our mortality is something we’d often like to forget, but it’s a matter to maturely and responsibly address.  I also recognize the Neptune Society’s end-of-life services may not appeal to everyone, whether due to religious grounds or simply personal preference.  But, if expense for these end-of-life arrangements is a concern, or a desire to simply consider a viable alternative to more conventional approaches to these end-of-life matters, the Neptune Society’s services are worth seriously considering.  And, Ms. Smith-Acala will serve as an excellent, caring guide if you choose to give the Neptune Society’s services some thought and consideration.  One aspect I can’t fail to mention is the Neptune Society treats its clients with exceptional fairness, and will not retain any fees for services it cannot perform.  Also, there is a decent period allowed each client for a change-of-mind, if you find yourself later in a panic about your choice, or decide on an alternative in consideration of loved ones who have persuaded you to follow a different path.  But whatever your personal circumstances, or ultimate decisions, I can’t recommend Ms. Smith-Acala to anyone highly enough, and I can easily exhaust a large collection of positive adjectives to describe her, regarding her professionalism, care, patience, respect for her clients, etc.  Please think seriously about contacting her.  She will make this topic a comfortable one for you, and if the Neptune Society’s services are right for you, you will be very happy to have reached out to her.  Ms. Smith can be reached by e-mail at Alia.SmithAcala@neptune-… or by telephone, directly, at 904.866.1577.

When my mother passed away suddenly in Florida, and myself being located in Chicago, dealing with this situation is already incredibly tragic and difficult. The Neptune Society was incredibly caring, and HELPFUL! I really cannot emphasize how manageable they made a difficult situation, and how they handled everything from beginning to end. I literally don’t know how I would have dealt with everything without their services, without William Spark and his incredible staff.

Thank you, everyone, for your assistance during this difficult time. I would highly recommend The Neptune Society pre-planning to anyone, and I’ve been recommending this valuable service to friends, particularly those who have family that live great distances away that they care for.

I was very impressed with the entire staff at Neptune Society! Chris came to my home to discuss the entire process and he could not have been more professional and polite. He listened attentively to my care giving role for the past 22 yrs and how losing my father at 92 was difficult but also a blessing. Both Jessica and Sheila were wonderful. They phoned me and emailed me to keep me abreast of the entire process. The urn was delivered to the cemetery right on schedule for the ceremony. The cost was reasonable and I appreciated the fact that the staff did not push me to purchase other items offered. Overall, I will definitely recommend Neptune Society to my friends and any acquaintances. Thank you so very much!! God Bless! Carolyn

Can’t thank Neptune and Samantha enough. Have already referred friends.

Chelsea was very responsive and sincerely supportive with none of the perfunctory “So sorry for your loss. Have a great day.” I heard in disbelief repeatedly while tending to my father’s affairs. I had to manage most details long distance and she made it very easy to take care of paperwork, etc. I would highly recommend The Neptune Society for making a difficult time as simple as possible.

From the moment I signed up for cremation for my husband and myself until today when I went to pick up his remains from the office every person I dealt with was so wonderful. They were all caring and really made me feel better about what I am going through. They were there right away when we called that my husband had passed away and were so gently with him I could not have asked for more. Everything was handled for me so all I had to do was sign papers and pick him up. They notified those who needed to be notified which took a lot off my plate. I would recommend them highly and have confidence that when the time comes for me to be in their hands my family will have the same respect and concern given to them that I received. Thank you.

The Neptune Society in Palm Harbor recently handled the cremation arrangements for my Father. The service provided by Samantha, the funeral director, was wonderful. She was professional, efficient, and compassionate. Samantha took her time with us, answered our every question, and kept us informed throughout the process. Compared to other funeral homes that we have used, The Neptune Society in Palm Harbor provided superior service for an economical price. Our family is so grateful that they were there to help us during such a difficult time.

Neptune Society came to our American legion and asked to speak in one of our meetings, so we let them come in and gave a spiel at our private meeting. There were four of us who liked the way they told us and liked the person giving the views of the Neptune Society. Then he asked us if we want to learn more about it, and invited us to come to a luncheon. And so, we did. We went down to the Red Lobster, had a free meal and learned a lot more about it there. After that, we invited them to our home and we filled out the papers and everything in private. They were very courteous and overly helpful. They did everything very well. It was a good experience with Neptune Society.

We are forever in their debt.

As sensitive Rickas end of life discussions always are, The Neptune Society offers professional, caring and important information on this subject. After meeting with a local funeral home to make final arrangements for my 95 year old mother in law (still alive and well) we were astonished to learn that it would cost over $12,000.00!  We then discovered The Neptune Society at a seminar and were so impressed with what they offered, we signed ourselves up thus saving thousands of dollars and relieving our kids of having to deal with end of life responsibilities.  Very professional from seminar to sign up.

I’ve worked with Neptune Society twice now for my father and for my stepmom, and they’re wonderful. My father prearranged and prepaid their burial with Neptune Society in the 90’s. So I followed what he told me to do. The first time, I had to drive with my stepmom all the way to Jacksonville when my dad died but they were great. The second time, when my stepmom passed away and I was calling Neptune, they were able to come to my home because one of their representatives lives nearby, so I didn’t have to drive all the way to Jacksonville. They had me sign the cremation permit, some final papers, death certificate, how many I needed, and just stuff that the state controls the cost. That made it easier because I work and had a lot to do in just a couple of days. They made my life so much easier. They were very efficient, thoughtful, caring and honest. My dad had picked out a mahogany box. They didn’t carry that product anymore but they were able to offer one that was very similar and they didn’t charge me anything extra. It was an excellent experience with Neptune Society.

I like the setup of everything. My friend, who went with them did the pre-planning. They had a very good experience, just doing the pre-planning. So, when I did it, I went in there and I shopped for two others that were similar pricing. But it was the compassion of both ladies that were there. There were two of them that I worked with and they were very helpful with everything. They were very nice and personable when I talked with them. I really enjoyed working with them with this horrible time.”

I was very impressed by the way this was all handled. I had my doubts about this program going into it. My father bought into it for himself, so I remained skeptical. I called Neptune after his death, and throughout the whole process, I received excellent service and accurate information all within a very professional manner. Kathy, from the Palm Harbor location, was great to work with during my difficult times. It is because of their level of excellence that I have bought a plan for myself. My experience with them was enough to sell me on getting my own plan. Thank you Neptune!!

Jessica Watts and the Neptune Society was of great assistance to me and my siblings after my father passed away.

I’m in great debt to them, as they made a seemingly impossible situation feel a bit more manageable.

They were concerned in how people feel when they lost someone they love. The receptionist was as sweet as she could be, and Chris walked us through everything. He gave us his cell phone number and told us to call many times. He answered all our questions, and if he didn’t know something, he got right back to us with it. I would go back if I ever needed to and hope to God I don’t need to for a long time or ever do it in a row. I would go back to Chris again. He was fantastic. The service went well and everybody made sure everything went well. They did an awesome job, I can’t ask for more.

Incredible experience, I highly recommend this service. I called a toll-free number and received a call back within an hour. Was able to schedule an appointment within two days. Do your homework, you won’t find a better price. There are a couple different ways to go, but nothing complicated. In our case, my father-in-law was already at Hospice, and it was an emotional decision. We felt very comfortable and the salesperson was kind and empathetic. When he passed away, we called the toll-free number again (they give you a card to carry in your wallet) and they did the rest. We were contacted by the administrative office for some small details (how many death certificates we needed), and the person there was very kind also. Everyone we talked to had a kind and understanding way of speaking and helped us a lot during the difficult time. So, all in all, it was a very excellent experience and I highly recommend it!

To be honest I wasn’t sure when my older brother said he had a pre paid cremation service. Since the charge he paid was little compared to an after death cremation through a funeral home I really didn’t expect much. That is until he passed away. The nursing home called Neptune on my behalf and they took complete charge in such an orderly and dignified way. Everything they did they announced in advance. Their communication and service was excellent. His ashes were to be scattered in the Gulf of Mexico. They did that expeditiously and sent me a certificate of the exact co ordinates where the ashes were scattered. I highly recommend their services to anyone who wishes to be cremated and I only wish there was a higher rating than 5 star because they were more than exceptional.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help with arranging and executing John’s cremation and delivering “him” to Connecticut so I can arrange his final resting place with his parents here in the northeast. And thank you for all the useful information you provided to us and guiding us through this process. It was very difficult for us with myself and my children each living in 3 different states other than Florida and you certainly made it so much easier on all of us. You provide a very valuable support and service during a very traumatic time for families and we appreciate everything you’ve done for us. Thank you, thank you.

Jessica, words can’t describe how grateful we are for everything you did for us. Losing a child is one of the hardest things a parent ever goes through and trying to take care of arrangements when the pain is so raw only makes things harder. Thank you for not only being there for us but also doing things that at the moment we didn’t realize how important to us they would be. We are one of the few lucky that can say they had compassion and great service when trying to make difficult decisions. We feel like you genuinely cared about our family and helping us get through this difficult time. Thank you for talking to me on the phone and just listening. You have no idea how important is was to us to be able to have her ashes with us at her memorial service and how much closure it brings to have a death certificate and know that she mattered and she was here. When her ashes didn’t fit in the urn we had picked, you quickly took care of the arrangements for us to be able to get a new one and having her in one place all together has been very important to us. Words can’t describe how grateful we are and always will be for all you did and we hope that Neptune Society knows how lucky they are to have you. God Bless you and once again thank you.

Dear Kellie, I have been going crazy the last three weeks, trying to come up with something unique to describe your organization. I’ve learned that you cannot outdo perfect. So to keep it short, THANK YOU for being PERFECT in all that you and your people do. My daughter and I are beyond happy with our decision to GO NEPTUNE

Places to Scatter Ashes in Florida

Neptune Memorial Reef

Off the coast of Key Biscayne in Miami there is a very unique way to memorialize a loved one who loved the sea. The Neptune Memorial Reef is an artificial reef whose structures are made out of cement mixed with the ashes of loved ones. Each structure in the reef, including lions, towers, and sea turtles, memorializes a different loved one with a special plaque. This is truly a living memorial; thousands of fish and sea creatures make their homes here, making the Neptune Memorial Reef and eco-friendly place to rest one’s ashes as well. To plan a memorial here, contact the Neptune Memorial Reef today.


Big Cypress National Preserve

Located in the south west corner of Florida and just north of Everglades National Park, this is Florida in its natural state. On the surface, this appears to be nothing more than a swamp, but this preserve plays a huge role in maintaining water quality and protecting wildlife such as the Florida panther and the American alligator in the Everglades and the rest of South Florida. Scattering ashes here legally will not harm the wildlife, but it will allow a loved one to become part of the vibrant environment. To receive legal permission to scatter here, simply complete the special use application on the Big Cypress National Preserve website and follow the instructions.

Additional Notes on Scattering Cremated Remains in Florida

Do NOT scatter at Walt Disney World! While this is a popular location for inconspicuous and illegal or “wildcat” scattering of remains, all families who have requested permission to scatter within the park have been denied the privilege. Other major theme parks including Universal Studios have similar rules. Even if you do successfully scatter in a theme park, chances are that the remains of your loved one will simply be swept up by cleaning crews and disposed of in another way.

Places to Hold Memorial Services in Florida
