I have used the Neptune Society in Texas before and had the best experience in an awful situation. So when my grandmother unexpectedly passed away and I got a phone call of who I wanted to use I immediately googled Neptune Society and was so pleased that there was one close by. I knew they would guide me and take care of everything. Mike was so very kind and easy to get a hold of when I had questions. He made this situation less stressful for us all. The prices are very affordable and there are plenty of options to fit the needs of any family. Highly recommend them and they will be the first ones I call again when needed.

When my sister died suddenly, Mike Neff was there for us throughout the entire process. I live in another state and could not travel to Indianapolis but I didn’t have to worry because Mike and his staff handled everything for us. I can’t say enough positive things about the kind and compassionate service we received. I don’t know what we would have done without Mike’s guidance and support as we dealt with my sister’s passing and the arrangements we had to make to take care of all the details a death entails. Thank you, Mike, for being there for us!

There are not enough words to express my thanks for the kindness and the sincere sincerity that Mike Neff showed to me. He took his time with me. He explained everything perfectly to me. He was above efficient. At a time when I couldn’t even think clearly, he continued to contact me and make sure I was fine and everything was going smoothly.

I can’t say enough good about Michael Neff and the Neptune Society. He walked me through the entire process and kept in contact every step of the way. He went above and beyond making arrangements for my husband’s remains to be buried in Florida at the national cemetery where he had requested his ashes go. His voice was always respectful and willing to help in any way. This was my first experience with the Neptune Society and I have to say I would recommend them to everyone. When my time comes I know I will be handled with the same care and respect.

My husband died in the hospital and the hospital notified Neptune Society right away. Then, I had a call from them with their condolences. Also, they were available for me at any time like within the few hours. The prompt service was very good. And I like the prepaying. I was nervous about it if I prepaid and we weren’t around to dispute it if there was a problem. But I was around after my husband passed away and the service was fine. My anxiety level was down.

I needed to update my contact/next of kin info, called and spoke with Ayanna. The typical protocol is to snail-mail a form to complete and return. But, because of my more urgent need, Ayanna offered to PDF the form, and I returned it electronically this morning. She was nice and made the process so easy. Thanks, Ayanna!!

My father passed away on a weekend and we found the documentation that my father had been working and buying prepaid cremation services through Neptune. I got a weekend person who was out in St. Louis or Kansas City. Her name was Julie and she started everything to help me. And then Mike, the one in charge of Indianapolis did the rest of it. All my questions were answered and they took care of anything and everything. It was a pleasant experience. If you wanna be cremated, go Neptune. They did a good job.

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.

I recently had the misfortune of losing my sister after a long battle with health issues. 6 years ago We contacted the Neptune Society for information, My sister asked a lot of questions and was extremely satisfied with the response to what arrangements she wanted upon her passing. 6 years later my sister succumbed to her health issues and I contacted Neptune to complete the arrangements my sister requested. My main contact at the Neptune Society was Michael who had my sisters file and was ready to enact all of the items my sister had requested. My experience was a positive one as Michael worked through the items and kept me informed as the process progressed. I was able to grieve and not be concerned about the logistics that are part of the process.

Our family received the services of the Neptune Society out of the Indianapolis office, and with Michael Neff. Michael was right there with us, from the very beginning, along with each step, and to the completion of their services to us. He was simply exceptional, kind, caring, and very professional while at the same time working behind the scenes to take care of our loved one. We knew that, and even though the path with Neptune was different than a traditional path after a loss, we had the peace of mind that is so vital to all of us they are faced with the process of loss and grief. Thank you so much to Mike and Neptune. My family was very pleased with the service, and in fact, other family members have decided to utilize Neptune for their own future plans and needs.

My Dad, Harry Scheid, recently passed away and although he had taken care of a lot of his funeral planning, there was still quite a bit to do. Mike Neff with the Neptune Society was a Godsend. He was always right there to answer any questions, to guide the way and most importantly was a HUGE assistance at the funeral itself. Never easy to go through this, but the assistance is truly appreciated.

Dealing with death is never easy and add that I am in Illinois making things just a bit more challenging. However, Neptune Society did such an excellent job with my husband’s cremation. I found Michael Neff to be extremely kind, helpful and very professional. I would highly recommend Neptune Society and the services of Michael Neff at the Indianapolis location.

I was so impressed with Jason here at Neptune. Our cremation was more difficult than most as it included 2 states and a contractor pick up.(Our contract was purchased in Illinois and then we moved Dad to Indiana.) Jason ran all the traps and was able to have the Downers Grove branch accept Dad’s ashes. It all went smoothly. 5 years ago, we used the Palatine, IL branch and they were very kind and professional. I can’t say enough about the personal. Thank you so much.

My husband passed away on November 4th at The Veterans Home in Lafayette. We planned ahead a few years ago on what we wanted and decided on cremation and started the pre-paid cremation plan for both of us. It was such a relief to have it in place when his death occurred. One phone call and everything was taken care of, no second guessing if this was the right thing to do since we already discussed it before his health deteriorated. Jason Costin at the Indianapolis location was wonderful at keeping in touch with me every step of the way. He explained the paperwork I needed to complete and how long the process of cremation, ashes and death certificate would take. With all the other stresses at this time, I was so grateful we pre-planned and I now have peace of mind knowing my children will not have to worry about it when it’s my time.

At our time of loss, sorrow and grief with no knowledge of what or how to manage and settle any arrangement for the death of my wife’s’ brother, Jason Costin led us through each step. Jasons’ assistance, cooperation, and guidance have been greatly appreciated. We continue to be thankful for our deceased brother to have selected Neptune Society and the continued support offered by Jason Costin.

My dad was a veteran and his friend in the Armed Services recommended Neptune Society. Their rep, Russ, came to the house and talked with my parents. Neptune Society was a veteran thing that’s why my dad liked it. After my dad passed, the hospital called Neptune Society. I called the rep later because we wanted to know what the next steps were and he was extremely nice. We ended up going down and meeting with him and he was very relaxed and comfortable. I also like the whole program. It would be something I would look into for myself and my husband.

Jason Costin and the Neptune Society of Indianapolis are wonderful. My father passed away in August and I was very unaware of how to handle the arrangements. Because arrangements had already been made with Neptune Society, the process of preparing for his cremation and funeral was easy. Jason is very personable, efficient, and a class act. I would highly recommend Jason and the Neptune Society of Indianapolis to any one.

Just want to thank the Neptune Society for their sincere and compassionate service on my Grandma. Jason came to the house and went over all the paperwork and details when we had no clue on the steps that were involved. He checked in every other day to keep us in the loop as on what was going on and when the cremation was done. When the ashes were ready to pick up, we brought in her urn and Mr. Costin asked if we would like to witness taking the ashes out of the plastic container and placing them in our cherry urn. We thought that was warm and served as closure for us since we didn’t do a traditional service. Thanks so much again and will recommend all to the Neptune Society.

I want to thank Jason Costin for being the best at what he does. My husband passed away on a Friday and throughout the weekend Jason stayed in constant contact with me. I felt comfortable leaving things in his hands. He never pushed me about which package I should take or rushed me through the process. Jason Costin was absolutely amazing!!

My mother died on June 6, 2017. The two caretakers who came to my parents home to pick my mother up were soft spoken, did not intrude, explained everything and took great care of her. Jason was in constant contact and answered all our questions during the crematory process. When Jason brought my mother’s ashes to my home he also was soft spoken and so caring of my feelings.
My father has his funeral planned through Neptune and I have absolutely no doubt my siblings and I will have the same experience.

Our parents decided to be cremated even though they had already purchased their grave sites. The planning ahead made much of the process easier to handle. My brother called when our mother died 4 years ago and my sister recently called Jason for my dad. We were not aware of all the details involved in preparing for a funeral and Jason was very helpful. Our dad was a veteran and Jason made the arrangements for him to be honored at his funeral. He was also very helpful with the Order of Interment program and the small details that personalize the moment. We really appreciate the help and guidance we received. Thanks Jason.

My mother recently entered hospice and I did not have a plan in place for cremation services. My wife shared that Neptune Society helped when her father passed, so I reached out to them. I had a brief discussion with them and planned to come back another time. Very soon after the visit, my mother passed and I needed to act quickly. The moment I called back to Neptune Society and began to work with Jason Costin, I was given amazingly quick, perfect and professional service.
Jason was so professional and prompt, it seemed like we had a relationship and plan already in place. He was incredibly patient and kind–especially at a moment of great loss. He made the entire process so simple and seamless. There were no hidden charges, complicated issues, or added work and responsibility on my part. Jason took care of everything and made it so much less taxing and burdensome. I was able to give my full attention to my family, which was crucial.
I wholeheartedly recommend the caring and kind professionals at Neptune Society. They are truly a trusted and caring partner during the most difficult times.

I and the rest of our family want to thank Jason Costin for all of his help in making all of the arrangements and taking care of our mother, Georgene K. Grimm, when she passed away recently. He was extremely helpful, caring, and kind, and made this difficult time easier for us. He is a wonderful person, and we all appreciate how well he took care of everything. Thank you, Jason Costin. Sincerely, Debbie H

This past May my mother passed unexpectedly. My mother did have a plans in place but due to the nature of her passing my sister and I were unable to move forward with her plans. This essentially left the full burden of our mom’s burial/cremation costs. We did not know where to begin. Our aunt recommended Neptune Society because she knew that we could not handle this on our own. So we contacted the local Neptune Society and that was the best thing we could have done for our mom. Jason contacted us that afternoon even though the office was closed. Neither my sister nor myself live in Indiana and would have made it much harder for the both of us to handle mom’s affairs. Jason who works out of the Indianapolis office was truly a gem to have in our corner. He handled all of the leg work for us. I mean everything! He made himself available all hours of the day, answered all of our questions and just allowed us to grieve without feeling pressured. The Society handled everything from A to Z and then some. Before we left Indiana my sister and I were confident that we made the right choice and we knew that our mom was in good hands. We were able to focus on what mattered and that was our families and friends. The cost was truly minimal compared to what it would have been if we would have done this on our own. At no given time did we feel pressured into making any decisions. Once he received the completed paperwork he went into action. He was truly amazing! In all honesty I know I could not have done it without having them in our corner. I want to say thank you to Jason and his staff for making a very hard time in our lives much more bearable to handle. It takes special people to be in this field and I know that we got the gem of all gems. This whole experience has made me think about looking into my own plan. It is not something that people don’t like to think about, but it is a part of life. Thank God we do organizations out there like Neptune Society that cares about the family first rather than being a price tag. Thank you Jason for everything! You are a very caring and compassionate man and made a truly difficult time in our lives much easier to bear.

My Mom passed unexpectedly a few weeks ago. We had always discussed her wishes being that her body would be donated to science for organ research and then cremated. Once she passed I began making calls to coordinate the procedure. It became apparent that the science community would not due to health complications accept my Mothers remains. With this all in mind I contacted Jason at the Neptune Society of Indianapolis to solicit their support. This was all new to me I have never had a loved one pass and for it to be my mother was beyond words or comprehension. Jason’s support and coordination was beyond exemplary. He guided and advised our family on all the next steps. My mother passed in Indiana however all her close friends and family were all in Ohio..Jason helped us with coordinating out of state arrangements, as well supporting us with all the small details. My sister and I could not have asked for more. He blessed our family with the the comfort , kindness and consideration that we needed during this sad and sorrow filled time. My mothers celebration was a beautiful day full of Joy, friends and family and we know in our hearts it would not have happened with such grace and beauty if it were not for the help and guidance Jason and the Neptune Society provided our family.

My family and I really appreciate how The Neptune Society of Indianapolis went above and beyond to make this most difficult time easier for us, upon my father’s unexpected passing last month. Jason and his team are incredibly conscientious, and exceeded our expectations with both their consistently quick communication and their thoughtfulness. They are most professional and genuinely kind. Jason and his team go out of their way to be proactive and to lead families through this heartbreaking process of losing a loved one while fulfilling the wishes of those who have passed. The Neptune Society sets a high standard of care, which is especially appreciated during this most difficult time.

Our Parents had purchased the services of this wonderful organization about 2 years ago and when our mother fell ill and passed away recently, one call to Neptune was all it took and they were there for us. Jason was so responsive to the needs of our Family quickly and professionally. Jason was there to bring our mom back home to us after the cremation. He provided us the proper care and handling of the ashes. Our Dad said that it was perfect! and that Jason and Neptune provided profession services exactly per the terms of the contract.

My experience with Neptune of Indianapolis has been wonderful. When I purchased the package a year ago, Michael made it sound so easy and stress free for me. “Just call us when it’s time.” That is what I did and they took over from there.

Our family is very pleased with the Neptune Society of Indianapolis and would highly recommend their services. Jason Costin, the location manager, went above and beyond to help our family during our time of grief. From the first time we spoke on the phone, until the cremains were delivered, Jason was extremely helpful and caring. He communicated consistently in a considerate and compassionate manner. He helped us through the process with no added stress or worries. This is the second time we have called upon Neptune Society for their services and would highly recommend. Thank you Jason, for a smooth and stress free transition for my family moving through our grieving process!

Neptune Society of Indianapolis, and Funeral Director Mr. Costin is highly recommended by our family! Everything was taken care of when our Grandmother passed. He took care of everything, leaving our family with no undo stress. He even gave us his personal cell phone number telling us he was available 24/7 with any questions we might have. How much that means to a grieving family! No words can explain. We would highly recommend Neptune Society in a family’s time of need. Thank you again.

The Indianapolis office of the Neptune Society, and in particular Jason Costin, did an incredible job in handling my Mother’s cremation. My Mother actually paid for this service back in 1986 and passed away in 2017. Their service was outstanding and very professional. I would definitely recommend their services.
Shame on me for worrying about whether or not the... Read More
Shame on me for worrying about whether or not the Neptune Society would be there for our family when we first signed up for cremation services a couple years ago. In these days of scams, it is increasingly difficult to trust a business to do what it says it will do. This is especially the case when there is only one opportunity to do things properly when a loved one passes. When my mother died recently as I held her hand, I walked out of her room wondering “now what do I do?”; “will I have to fight to get people to do what I thought I had arranged?”; “will I have to micro-manage ‘after death’ details when I can hardly grasp the loss of my mom”? I am told that I am a bit of a perfectionist and difficult to please, so I was expecting the worst, BUT I was completely satisfied with the Neptune Society and Jason in particular. There was never any pressure to buy a particular package of services when we first signed on, nor were we made to feel inadequate when we needed to work within a tight budget. Communication was very appropriate and timely. Everything we thought we had purchased was delivered with compassion and professionalism. My fears of being taken advantage of were totally misplaced. Our family is just so grateful to Jason for helping us through this early stage of our grief, and for the Neptune Society for allowing us to have the option of a very personal end-of-life experience with our dear mother. Thank you so much!

I will have to tell you that the person that handled my mother’s case when she passed away, was the most wonderful, kind, and caring person. I had no idea that going through Neptune was going to be so easy. Jason Costin was there every step of the way and I am so grateful that it was him that handled all of this, there is so much that they do which saves the family a lot of time and heartache. Without him, this would have not even been possible. Really Jason was there for me more than my own family was and that is saying a lot.

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.

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.
