Have also been a trustee, an executor, and currently a trustor

In my opinion -
Yes, your house deed needs to be in the trust name. My lawyer handled all the paperwork with the county when I had my trust done years ago.
The will - make it a "pour-over" will. It decrees that all property in the estate at the time of death "pours-over" into the trust. Takes care of things not listed in the Trust.

How reputable is the Neptune Society? When you say you paid the charges, do you mean you prepaid for the entire process? Do you name the place?
