My husband died on March 5. We made arrangements for Neptune to take care of us long ago. Machelle Farley spoke to my husband’s son and myself about the procedure. She was professional yet kind and so very sympathetic. I met her as a new widow and my son and I left feeling we had made a friend. My sincere thanks to you and your company Michelle, I will never forget your kindness.

My parents made their cremation arrangements with Neptune in 1978. It was easy to finalize the details for my mother’s basic-services cremation. The staff who came to the house to retrieve her body and the staff at the office were very helpful, professional and courteous. We have no complaints, but can’t say we are “looking forward to using their services again.” I just know when the time comes, my other parent will be in good hands.

I had the opportunity of going in and meeting with the people that work there. Sensitive intelligent thoughtful and professional. They supplied me with all the information I needed and I was convinced of that time to sign up with them and so did my girlfriend. My final and last names hoping that by this wonderful group of professionals. I can’t recommend them High Enough.

“In a world where you mostly hear about what went wrong, I would like to let you know about what went RIGHT with a very sensitive time in my life. My mother had signed up for the Neptune Society of Northern California long ago and I never knew what this meant. Now I do… Michelle made this process easy, and I have a beautiful urn, and instructions on how and where to use it, including that I would need permits and permission. Very helpful information. I am recommending the Neptune Society of Northern California to my many friends whose parents are going through the same process as I am, and all this is because of Michelle. Thank you for creating a culture of empathy and understanding over tackle the ankle sales–it truly stands out in today’s society. As a board certified coach and consultative sales and marketing expert, I do not say everything I just told you to most companies and their employees. They earn my high recommendations.”

Our Services

The Marin County office of the Neptune Society of Northern California is proud to provide quality cremation services. Through our professional care, we have serviced families throughout the Bay Area for years. More and more families are considering cremation as a green, flexible, and economical alternative to traditional burials. Cremation does not require embalming which uses toxic chemicals that can seep into the soil after burial. A cremation also doesn’t require a large burial plot or any kind of burial at all, reducing land use and reserving it for prosperity to enjoy. Cremations also reduce the stress associated with funeral planning, as the memorial service can occur after cremation, allowing family and friends the have time to come together and remember their loved one. Preplanning a cremation allows you to potentially save your family hundreds on funeral costs and gives you the opportunity to take control over your own future. Prices for all kinds of funeral and memorial services rise each year due to inflation and other rising costs. By planning your cremation with the Neptune Society of Northern California, you can lock in today’s prices and relieve loved ones of the financial burdens of future costs. Preplanning also gives you the opportunity to choose from a variety of cremation services and options to ensure that loved ones and the Neptune Society of Northern California will carry out your final wishes with the professionalism and respect you deserve.
