Katrina at the Neptune Society in Reno, Nevada, was heaven sent. Her concern, caring, attention to detail, patience, understanding were and are remarkable. If I ever have to go through anything like this I would want her by my side.

Please accept my thanks for helping me at the time of my mother’s death. Dorothy Griffen had pre-arrangement with your organization, and Katrina was an exceptional representative. She was kind, professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. Her sincere approach with me, a stranger, was reassuring and comforting.

On the morning of my mother’s death, the respectful care with which her body was removed from the hospital and placed into the ambulance was also exceptional. Every effort was made to respect the death experience, including care for me as I accompanied her body to the vehicle.

When things settle down, I will contact your organization to make my own pre-arrangements.

Thank you for helping me through a sad and lonely time.

When you find yourself in this unbelievable time, you really have no idea where to turn. I thank God for what Neptune did and are still doing, even a month later, to help us cope, function, and plan. Cheryl had such respect for my dad! She never rushed or talked downed to him. Cheryl made me feel like she was helping her good friends.  Cheryl was the absolute best! An angel, she has the gift of compassion, love, kindness, knowledge, and friendliness. What an asset to Neptune. Neptune really has great people that make the best out of the worst. Thank you for getting us thru it.

Sara ** was very helpful when we were planning and making arrangements for my brother’s remains. I appreciate her making it easier at a difficult time. She and others in the office answered questions and gave us directions since we were from Texas we did not know where to go to take care of my brother’s things. They went beyond just doing their jobs. We appreciated all they did for us. Wonderful people caring and helpful. Thank you.

In a the most difficult time in one’s life, to have to deal with the emotions of the death of a parent or a spouse, having all or most of the details taken care of in advance, in my case, even pre-paid, and helped by loving, professional, knowledgeable staff who can do most everything but take away your pain, this is The Best service in Any industry, as it should be. This company has been around for years, and I would like to think every company like this does just as good of a job, and they may, but I can only speak of my experience. We went with NS because of their long-standing reputation and we are glad we did. Thank you, NS.

Recently, I unexpectedly lost my brother and wasn’t sure where to start with arrangements. My best friend referred me to Neptune Society and specifically Natisha DeGourville. She assisted my family and handled us with such compassion, and care that I didn’t feel as stressed as anticipated. It’s been over a month since my brother passed and I am still thanking God for allowing Natisha to be apart of one of the hardest times of my life. I cannot say thank you enough… God Bless you

I had a wonderful experience with Neptune Society. They dealt with everything and they saw to it anything I needed was taken care of. They made sure that I understood everything that I needed to be looking at and how I needed to do things and how things were gonna happen. And the transfer from Utah back to Las Vegas went really smooth. They saw to it I had my death certificates, and they helped me write the obituaries for two different states. We had everything pretty well set up because they seem to know exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it done. I really, really appreciate them.

I was contacted by Ms. Beaulac when my brother passed.  I had not spoken to my brother in many years and was surprised to be contacted about making his final arrangements.  As I don’t live in Reno it required  Ms. Beaulac and me to have several phone conversations.  She was always professional, compassionate,  knowledgeable, and friendly.  She made a difficult time feel uncomplicated and trouble-free.  I hope I am able to find a nearby Neptune branch when I am ready to make my own arrangements.

I have received notices from Neptune Society in the mail and it wasn’t something that I thought I would ever be interested in. I threw it away until my husband passed away and he had already signed up for Neptune. So I thought, “Well, they did a bit of organization.” Everything has been wonderful. They’ve been very calm and patient. Also, they explained everything. What was going on, how it was gonna work. Everything’s taken care of and when the time comes with them, you don’t have to worry about any of it. I would definitely recommend them.

My mom passed recently and thank goodness she had chosen Neptune to take her on her final trip. Since I lived out of state it was very difficult to deal with all the issues and problems that come with a sudden passing. Tamar at Reno was a hidden blessing. She was there for questions and requests and help make the whole process a bit easier. She let me know about things I should know but didn’t when it comes to the business side of things. I can never thank her enough. Tamar made a very difficult time, easier all around.

I have only my deepest appreciation for Ms. Sara for her being just the best in helping with my brother-law Robert Madsen.  She knew that we were out of state and walked us thru all the steps and procedures.
My husband and I are Neptune members and our son and daughter in law came to help us in Las Vegas so they have a very good idea what is in store when we pass away.
Again thank you for all your compassion and assistance Ms. Sara, I am so glad you moved to Vegas.

When my father died in 2007 my mom and I went over to Neptune Society because we knew that he had wanted to be cremated. Then she had already pre-paid her whole Neptune Society cremation and urn. I had a wonderful interaction with Neptune with my mother passing away this last March. Tisha was very, very helpful with handling my mom’s affairs. Any interaction we had with her was very positive.

After mom passed in the hospital, we called Neptune Society and they took care of transporting her body. And then going and meeting with Tisha at the office a few days later, just to find out what the process needed to be and how many death certificates we needed and mom’s urn. So it was very easy for my brother and I. It was nice that we had only one contact person other than the individual who sits in the front, just as a receptionist, who was also very good, very friendly, and very professional.

My mother had a finger on one of her hands that was kind of deformed from when she was a child and that was my favorite finger of hers, which sounds weird to say, but it was special. And so, I had asked them to make fingerprints or Tisha offered to have fingerprints taken. She had the fingerprint mailed to me. My mom passed away in Nevada and we live in Colorado and my brother is up in Washington State, and we had asked if Tisha could send some of mom’s ashes to us through the mail, just a small portion so that we could sprinkle them on Mother’s Day. She overnighted them and got them to us and was just very helpful. So overall, they were really exceptionally professional and compassionate to us in a time that we definitely needed that.

Both of the times that I had to deal with Neptune Society were prearranged. I’m in California and they were in Las Vegas. So, we did everything over the phone. They were very nice and efficient. My father prearranged it and I like the convenience of having everything taken care of when it does happen. They made it very easy and comfortable. I was really happy with it.

This location is so easy to deal with. The compassion and understanding is so appreciated. We purchased our cremation packages at this location in Sun City off of Del Web, and we couldn’t be happier. Susie has helped us with so many questions and always seems to have a very friendly disposition. She is someone we can count on for information regarding our account, or if we have any concerns about my Mom’s arrangements etc. Based on great customer service and the support that is offered at this location, I highly recommend.”

I had some problems with a different funeral home, and had to move my mother to Neptune. They worked with us and helped us with all the paperwork.

My mother has late stage dementia and could not remember anything about the funeral plans she purchased.  I remembered hearing about the Neptune Society in Las Vegas.  I knew she lived in Summerlin so I called the Neptune Society nearest to there on Del Webb Blvd.

Anna M. answered the phone and proceeded to go above and beyond trying to find the info I needed.  She was very professional and courteous and was able to track down the service my mother purchased 17 years ago even though it was at another funeral home.

I live in Northern California.  She promised me she would email me the information and she did what she said she would do.  Very grateful!

At the Most difficult time the Neptune Society made Our visit comforting and very professional. My Mom took care of her funeral expenses and wishes on her own years ago. So when she passed, we didn’t have to worry about doing it.. When she did finally pass. All we had to do was call them.. We called The Neptune Society the next day and made an appointment to sign Paperwork..My husband and My Brothers met with Karin .. She was so Comforting and explained to us what would be happening. We were given the option of purchasing additional Beautiful Urns and pendants etc. When We left. We all agreed Our visit was Great even tho we felt so sad about Our Mom’s passing. It was Memorial Day weekend so Karin told us it would take a little longer. I dreaded that day I would have to go back. I got the call and took the drive by myself . Again I met with Karin. The Most caring Beautiful Person. She comforted me with her kind words.. I will never forget her..Thank You Karin, You touched My Heart.

I have to say the Neptune Society was a blessing for my family when my parents passed on. My dad died 5 years ago and my mom passed 2 months ago. They both had signed up with their prepaid plan. All we had to do was make one call when it was their time and everything was taken care of for us. The Neptune Society did everything down to arranging pickup, ashes and death certificates. During such difficult times, I am very grateful that my parents make it so easy for us to carry out their wishes.

Additional Notes on Scattering Cremated Remains in Nevada

Nevada 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.

Nevada Cremation FAQs

What happens if you can't afford funeral services for you or your loved on in the state of Nevada?

Although state funeral and burial assistance is in decline, there are available resources. To qualify for the Nevada Indigent Burial and Cremation program, the deceased must have to estate from which to pay for a funeral, no family who can afford a service, and be ineligible for assistance from the Social Security or Veterans administration. If these criteria are met, the Public Administrator, or Indigent Burial Officer of the state, pays for a direct cremation of the deceased (the least expensive method). This is why it’s so important to pre-plan.

What veterans benefits are available in Nevada?

The VA benefits provided (at no cost to the family) include a grave site; opening and closing of the grave; perpetual grave site care; a government headstone or market; and United States burial flag that can be draped over the casket or accompany the urn (and is given to the next of kin after the service); an engraved presidential memorial certificate signed by the current sitting President, expressing the country’s grateful recognition of their service.

How many funeral homes are there in Nevada?

There are 46 funeral homes in 20 cities of Nevada.
