There are many factors that go into choosing a funeral home. For most Milwaukee-area families, a professional, compassionate staff and a variety of service and personalization options are at the top of their list. Many say they chose us because they knew we were a family-owned business with family values at the core of everything we do. Others say it’s because their friends or family members were so pleased with our services. Some even connect with us because of our great reviews on Facebook. What it all comes down to though is trust. For one reason or another, they have decided they can trust Krause Funeral Homes.
As more people choose cremation, there is an extra layer of trust required for a funeral home. It’s different from a traditional burial, where a family will often be present at the moment their loved one is closed into the casket and placed into a vehicle for transport to the cemetery. When you hand your loved one over to a funeral home for cremation, you have to know you can trust they will treat your family member or friend with dignity and respect throughout the whole process, and that at the end, the remains returned to you are truly those of your loved one.
Giving families this peace of mind is the primary consideration for Krause Funeral Homes and Cremation Service. That’s why we own and operate our own crematory, unlike many other funeral homes and cremation societies, who outsource cremation to third-party providers.
We are also the only funeral provider in Milwaukee to offer a 10-step cremation process backed by the exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee. This trademarked process ensures your loved one never leaves our care from the moment they arrive at our funeral home, through the process, to the return of their cremated remains to you.
This guarantee – or promise – to you and your family will give you priceless peace of mind. After all, you don’t get a do-over with cremation. We know we get once chance to do it properly, which is why owing our own private crematory is so important to us. We are able to observe the entire process from beginning to end, ensuring every one of the ten steps is followed to the letter. We can also make sure our equipment is maintained meticulously, and that only licensed, trained staff members complete the cremation. Our code of ethics goes above and beyond what the state requires of us.
We will even allow you to tour our facility and inspect the equipment. We’re also the only funeral home in the Milwaukee area with a special viewing room right next to our crematory, so you can be present for the start of the cremation process, if it will bring you extra peace of mind.
At the end of the day, this is all about honoring the life of your loved one and helping move your family towards healing. That’s something the team at Krause Funeral Homes never forgets.
