Original review: May 17, 2019

I’ve had several people pass away in my lifetime. Neptune Society is who we went to because the people are being cremated. We took advantage of the preplanning services for two of the people. The third person started to arrange everything and then neglected to pay for it. But I am going to have mine prepaid and ready when I pass. I like that my family does not have to worry about it. The people there are absolutely amazing. They are caring and what impresses me is their patience. They don’t gouge you or expect you to spend the money on a bunch of trinkets. You would come in and have your person there, and they’re cremated. The people at Neptune are very thoughtful and considerate, especially Amanda, the one on Travis in Fairfield.

The true care, professional respect and preparation of my loved one done by the Neptune Society was beyond my expectations. Jackie and Jamie made my processing and preparations very comfortable. The follow up calls and up to date information was the best that I could ask for. They made me feel truly like family and not a number. The comfort they bestowed to me made me go through this difficult time much easier. I will be using The Neptune Society for my personal preparations in the near future because of this. Thank you and continue doing the wonderful job that you do.

Neptune Society has been very helpful with the loss of my husband. It was a difficult time, and Amanda in the Fairfield office has been very caring. I thought it was a good idea to take care of such matters ahead of time so my husband and I took care of it some 20 years ago, and I have been happy with the company. My mother had the same thing when she died and they took care of it for her. The only downside was that she didn't die in Santa Cruz County and I didn't know to call the proper county. And so, I was charged for picking up her remains. But it was a minimal charge so it wasn't a big deal.

Neptune Society of Northern California response

Karen, please accept our condolences on the passing of your husband. We really appreciate hearing your feedback and your experience online with Amanda her amazing team.

We sincerely apologize for any bumps that you encountered during your mother's service but please know that we are always here to help. Thank you for your time, take care.

The Neptune Society of Northern California was exceptionally kind and respectful to my father when he was putting his affairs in place. My father was very adamant with what he wanted when he passed and the employees at the Neptune Society worked with him so that when his time came he was at peace knowing his wishes would be carried out to the letter. After my father passed the company was very kind and made sure that they carried out my father’s desires while adhering to California law. Amanda was not only compassionate and understanding. She was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of my questions. The professional and caring way that my father and I were treated was exemplary.

I'm the executor of my grandmother's trust and was there at the house when she passed. I knew Neptune would be taking care of her, and so I reached out to them. They were very friendly from coming to get her through walking me through everything on their end that I needed to do. Margaret and her team were very professional and helped me through the process and answering questions I had. They were great to work with and I never had any issues getting ahold of anyone. Losing a loved one is hard but they made it a lot easier.

Neptune Society of Northern California response

We attended a seminar that Neptune of Northern California was putting on, and we signed up there. They took over when my mother passed, and everything worked perfect. They kept me informed along the way. It was an amazing experience.

My father's wife had Neptune, and it worked really well when she passed away. It went so well that we decided to set it up for us and for my father. The people were very nice. They were right there for us when we needed them, and everything went very smoothly.

We had a pre-planned service with another agency which didn’t make us feel comfortable, and a hospice referred Neptune Society of Northern California. We called Neptune last minute, and then Neptune got our funds back from the other agency. The people at Neptune were fantastic. They handled things from A to Z and they were really thoughtful during the whole process. Kelly, from the moment we placed a call to the very end, was caring, organized, detailed and helpful.

I was lost after the passing of Ricky whom I cared for and the staff at Neptune from the start at 4am were compassionate, respectful, gentle and patient and so helpful to me. Since I am low income they even helped find ways to lower the cost. They took care of me and my family at this stage of the circle of life. I recommend them all the way. Thank you Neptune's staff in Stockton for all you do. God will bless you all.

My husband and I contracted with the Neptune Society many years ago. When he died, they came within a few hours to take him away, and they delivered the remains to the church of our choice in plenty of time for the burial services. Everything worked perfectly.

Ryan, was so patient and helpful when making arrangements for my Sister's husband who had just passed. Unfortunately, he did not have a medical directive or trust, so we were trying to make appropriate choices. Ryan did not rush us, or try to sell us something we did not feel we needed. He took care of all the arrangements even contacting the VA Cemetery, internment and my Sister, when her time comes, can be buried near him. Ryan, thanks for all your assistance and helping us through these difficult times, Regards, Electrice ** and Linda **.

I'm satisfied with this purchase of a pre-need arrangement for my cremation. It has met my expectations of the services to be provided, benefits and the cost of my cremation. I've already recommended The Neptune Society to my family members. In the near future, I'll purchase another one.

The people in Chico were very kind and thoughtful. They made the process much easier for us and our family very much appreciated that. They spent as much time as needed to explain the process and were always available to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing funeral services.

I am so grateful to have this part of living taken care of! My agent was knowledgeable and kind. Any worries I had are relieved. Payment was convenient and easy on a time plan.

Hello, I have recently lost my Mother after a long standing process of decline.

I am extremely pleased with the professional and caring way I was treated. This company gets my highest recommendations to possible future customers.

We signed up with Neptune Society to save our adult children from having to make these decisions and pay out their money before the estate is settled. It is the cheapest in price for a cremation in the Bay Area. Neptune Society is present throughout the USA and we signed up for the "travel insurance" which will cover the costs to return our remains to the Bay Area if we are traveling when our death happens.

My mother Evelyn ** purchased a pre need package from Neptune back in the 90's. My mother passed away January 1, 2019 at home. She was on Hospice. The hospice nurse made the phone call to Neptune for removal. I signed papers with Neptune stating mom would be cremated within 15 days, it took 24 days and Neptune has not told me any reasons other than things that could cause delays. I want to know what occurred during the 15days with dates/times that cause her to be delayed 24 days.

Neptune Society of Northern California response

Linda, we wish to express our heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your mother. Neptune Society of Northern California always works to provide the highest quality of service, and we deeply apologize for any dissatisfaction you experienced with any delays in the cremation of your mother. It is our understanding that you were told by the Service Manager that the coroner had to investigate the death which held up the death certificates and the cremation a couple of days. Please keep in mind that if the coroner gets involved it is out of our control if any delays do happen. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and for not meeting your expectations.
