I am so grateful to Jason Costin for his exceptional service at the time of my husband's death. Jason was kind and compassionate. He quickly answered calls and emails, providing assistance with every detail. His ready answers to my questions gave me comfort and helped to simplify the painful process of losing a loved one.

Neptune Society, thank you for the wonderful care provided upon the passing of Susan this past October. We appreciate your quick response and the timely manner initiated for our loved one. Jason was a great help as we began the paperwork and the process of publishing obituaries. We could not have asked for a better experience.

I would like to thank Jason Costin for the outstanding support that was provided to our family. My mother, Norma, purchased her cremation package 20+yrs ago in Florida, prior to computer databases. Jason was able to locate all documentation within 24hrs of our call. He not only provided clear direction and compassion but was highly informative on Veteran benefits due to our mother. My sister, Karen, and I were so pleased and impressed with Jason's support, that we have decided to purchase our own Neptune Society Cremation package.

We feel that we lucked out by choosing the Neptune Society and working with Jason. We had to manage the treatment of our loved one's remains from out-of-state, and he was excellent at communicating with us and informing us of the measures that needed to be taken. Jason's customer service is top-notch and he is the perfect mix of kind and efficient.

He always was available, drove 2 hours to deliver our loved one, and even called before arriving to see if we needed anything! He told us he would take care of everything and he did! What a wonderful asset to Neptune Society. Thank you for your compassion and we would highly recommend Indiana Neptune Society!

I wish to thank Jason Costin and the Indianapolis Neptune Society for the wonderful, compassionate care that was provided to me on June 1, 2016 when my dear father died. Both my father and myself were treated with the utmost respect. Jason was always available by phone and e-mail and quickly helped me to handle the necessary paperwork. I can recommend the Indianapolis Neptune Society without reservation. The death of a loved one is very emotional and having a competent, caring person to guide you through the process is invaluable.

Additional Notes on Scattering Cremated Remains in Indiana

Indiana law allows you to scatter ashes over uninhabited public land with permission/a permit, over a public waterway or sea, or on private property of a consenting owner. If scattering at sea you must be at least 3 nautical miles from land, notify the EPA within 30 days of scattering, and avoid beaches and wading pools. You must obtain a permit to scatter on federal land. You can also scatter the ashes, but NOT the container, from the air as the government doesn’t consider cremains to be hazardous material. If the container isn’t biodegradable you must remove the ashes from the container before scattering. A form documenting the disposition of ashes must be filled with the county recorder within 10 days of placement or scattering.
