The Neptune Society Columbarium was dedicated in 1898 and is located in the Richmond District of San Francisco. The Columbarium and surrounding buildings are the only active non-denominational cemeteries in the city, following the removal of all city cemeteries in the 1930's. The Neptune Society has been in operation since 1973 and manages the Columbarium and the cremation services for those in the area who believe this method is right for them. The society has worked with tens of thousands of families to meet their cremation and funeral needs. They offer full support during the entire process, from choosing the path that is right for you to moving forward following the death of a loved one. In addition to the Columbarium, Neptune offers access to the Naiad, a ship that sails near the Golden Gate Bridge, allowing you to spread the ashes of your loved one. The Columbarium provides a set location for storing your loved one's ashes, offering a peaceful location in which to visit and remember your loved one. The building is considered an architectural masterpiece in the neo-classical style. Those looking to put together a plan before they pass so their relatives can focus on a celebration of life, instead of organizing death, join the Neptune Society. Their goal is to provide support and dignified solutions for end of life challenges.
