Neptune Society recently took care of the cremation of my husband Virgil. Gregory Crouse was very professional and took care of the details that I was so grateful for. It was a very difficult time for me and I and his son and daughter were relieved to have Neptune Society handle every detail from having my dearly departed’s body picked up at Hospice to my picking up the urn with his ashes intact.

I have recommended to a friend to think about Neptune if they are considering prepaying for cremation.

The kindness, caring, professionalism, and dedication of Gregory Crouse in the Nashville, TN office would be almost impossible to surpass! He is truly a joy to work within a time of great need and sadness. He answers his phone, so you don’t have to be put on hold or a callback. He responds promptly to emails, even on weekends! The handling of my daughter’s cremation and ashes was done in such a respectful, dignified, and timely manner. Greg is wonderful! The Nashville office and Neptune Society should count their lucky stars to have such a great employee! I would give the Neptune Society and this Nashville office 10 stars if I could!

We contacted a local representative through the telephone telling that we were interested in cremation. Jennifer from Neptune Society came out and told us about the program. She was very thorough, and when we had a few follow-up questions, she jumped right on. Jennifer did an excellent job, and their presentation, the size of the organization, and the geographic region were really impressive. I had a feeling of stability about the company, and so we signed up. I wrote a note to the president of their organization. There is a local guy just outside of Knoxville that did a really good turnkey service. We simply had to provide him a cement formation and he took it from there. The overall scope and smoothness of Neptune Society’s services were excellent. We are very pleased with them. I will get myself on the program whenever I need it.

Cremation is a topic that we usually don’t want to talk about, but there are ways to reduce the stress and make arrangements ahead of time in an economical fashion. We availed of Neptune Society’s pre-planning service and it was worthwhile. My wife was a temporary employee there and everything was great with our experience. Their team was very efficient and our customer service rep, Beth, was very good at what she did. She explained everything to us, gave us the right information, and let us make our own decision.

We met with our Neptune Society counselor a couple of weeks ago at a local coffee shop. Everything was so easy and relaxed.

Using Neptune Society’s preplanning services has been reassuring and a great relief. My wife passed away just before midnight of Thanksgiving. I called their receptionist at 2:00 AM, and it was very nice. The next morning, Thanksgiving morning, they called me and set up an appointment. I wanted the service to be done by Sunday and our rep assured me that he’d get it done by then and he did. He also took care of everything in terms of ashes.

Greg and the staff at Neptune Society in Brentwood were completely professional and helpful from day one. We, unfortunately, lost both parents within 8 months and Greg was very caring and thoughtful. He made the process very easy and provided a lot of useful information for our plans to take ashes to another state. When I needed more certificates, he was able to get those to be extremely fast. I would absolutely recommend this company 100%.

My wife Nancy passed away November 22, 2017, the night before Thanksgiving. We had signed up with the Neptune Society in 2009. I just can’t say enough good about how well I was treated by the Nashville office, specifically Gregory Crouse. The cremation occurred in time for the interment service at our church, and Greg was completely compassionate about my needs. I felt that the remembrances (lockets for daughter and granddaughter) were beautiful and priced appropriately. A wonderful experience all around, and it made the death of my wife a little easier to handle.

This office was extremely helpful with my husbands passing. The man I spoke to was empathetic and really smoothly transitioned my paperwork into working cremation, with the help of my daughter. I have already told some of my friends who I went with in middle Tennessee and encouraged them to make a plan. Would recommend fully.

My husband and I purchased Neptune Society (NS) services back when we were young and immortal. Recently, my husband passed away and my first thought was panic…then I remembered I had put all the NS stuff in with our trust.
When I dialed the number listed in LARGE (thank you) numbers, I had no idea of what to expect. I needn’t have worried. They came promptly and explained the process and gave me phone numbers for questions, etc.

They were compassionate but professional and handled everything for me quickly and perfectly.

They are a blessing when you are in so much pain.

We used Neptune Society for both mine and my husband’s Mother. They were very professional, but also conveyed a caring and warm attitude through both loses. The process was absolutely seamless from both beginnings and endings even though the events were years apart. They are very warm, informative and open, but we never felt that we were being “sold” anything. Thank you Neptune Society in Brentwood, we appreciate your warmth, commitment and service very much.

When my father passed away… it fell to me to work with Neptune…enter Coco into my life at a time I needed her most! Her calm manner coupled with her knowledge and expertise kept our family on track during a very difficult time. She handled everything with professionalism, compassion and effciency. She was a rock for me, my sister and my step-mother.

When he died, I went to meet with the funeral home director again and loved her. I told her stories about him and we laughed and I cried. Coco has stayed in touch with me to see how I am doing. I feel that the family members are very very important to her. I cannot recomend Neptune more highly.

Additional Notes on Scattering Cremated Remains in Tennessee

Tennessee 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.
