Death Away From Home
In our global society, it’s no surprise that sometimes death occurs away from home. Loved ones may die while on a business trip, vacation or at a temporary residence away from their hometown. Fortunately, today’s ease of transportation means relatively minimal time and effort to make appropriate arrangements.
Support for Your Family
At Krause Funeral Homes, we act as a true advocate for your family. That means you can rest assured knowing that your loved one will be transported home in a professional manner for the lowest possible cost. Our experienced staff will work closely with you to address any issues you may have such as what kind of care will be taken when air travel is involved.
A Budget to Fit Your Needs
We offer a variety of options to bring family members home depending on your budget needs. Additionally, if the deceased has pre-funded their funeral through an insurance policy, they may qualify for an additional benefit to help cover the expense if they died more than 250 miles away from home.
Krause Funeral Homes coordinates all aspects of out-of-town transfers and works to eliminate duplication of services and fees.
Call Your Hometown Funeral Director
The first step in containing costs is to call a funeral home in the city in which services are to be held. For instance: if someone dies while on vacation in Tallahassee but the family intends to hold services in Milwaukee, the family should immediately call their Milwaukee funeral home. Contacting a local funeral home eliminates the possibility of service and fee duplication.
