Our sister passed in 2019. My brother-in-law stated how appreciative he was that they had contacted Neptune Society and recommended them for our brother who was declining quickly from cancer. The paperwork was simple and easy to complete. Upon our brother’s passing, we contacted Neptune. The young man and woman who showed up were so respectful and kind. They gave us as much time as we wanted and as they slowly drove away, they played a song from one of his favorite groups. Our deepest appreciation to Neptune Society.
Why Choose Cremation?
Cremation is chosen for end-of-life care almost 50% of time, and the choice of cremation is on the rise. Why is cremation increasingly popular for end of life needs?
1. Low Cost.
The cost of cremation is a fraction of the cost of burial. Burial costs include the price of:
- a casket
- burial vault
- cemetery plot
- grave marker
- and burial service.
With affordable cremation, burial costs are avoided. Even when families choose a cremation burial or cremation urn placement in a columbarium, the cost of interment is substantially lower. Interment of cremated remains uses less real estate, and does not require a burial vault.
Direct cremation, cremation without other services, eliminates the cost of a funeral, and offers the lowest cost for cremation.
The choice of cremation allows flexibility in funeral and memorial services. Families choose:
- funeral rites prior to cremation
- a memorial service following cremation
- a cremation service at the time of cremation
- direct cremation with no formal service at all.
Cremation allows scheduling of services at a time that works best for the family, even weeks following the passing when family gathers across long distances.
Following cremation, families choose to:
- scatter cremation ashes
- retain cremated remains in a cremation urn
- select a spot for permanent interment
Permanent cremation memorials include deployment to the Neptune Memorial Reef™, columbarium interment, cremation burial, and inclusion in a memorial garden or memorial bench.
3. Protect the Environment
Cremation is a green burial alternative. For those concerned about their final footprint, cremation is an environmentally friendly end-of-life choice. Cremation avoids embalming chemicals, and limits the use of financial and land resources.
Arrange cremation with a single phone call. Neptune Society offers a home visit to discuss cremation options at your convenience. At the time of need, just one call to Neptune Society takes care of final needs.
