We have all seen the horrific stories in the media about the families who have been devastated by an unsavory, or just irresponsible, funeral home that somehow managed to cremate the wrong person, or return the wrong remains to a family. Can you imagine the pain these families experience?
It’s enough to make some people question the safety of cremation altogether, but Milwaukee families can rest assured that won’t happen if they choose Krause Funeral Homes and Cremation Service. Why are we so confident about that? Because we own and operate our own crematory, allowing us to manage and oversee all of our procedures. Not everyone can say this. Many funeral homes and cremation societies outsource cremation to third-party providers – sometimes to different cities or counties. At Krause, your loved one never leaves our diligent and professional care.
We are also the only family-owned funeral provider in Milwaukee to offer a 10-step cremation process backed by our exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee. Our trademarked process ensures from the moment your loved one arrives at our funeral home, through the cremation process, to the return of the cremated remains to you, they are treated with the greatest dignity and respect.
Our Crematory Chapel is operated by our own knowledgeable and licensed staff. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics and are members of the ICCFA (International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association), which provides advanced staff training. Our code of ethics goes above and beyond what the state requires of us, but we don’t mind. We’ll do anything to make our families more comfortable.
Owning our own crematory allows us to be 100% certain our equipment is always state of the art, immaculately maintained, and environmentally safe. We not only allow, but encourage 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 even be present for the start of the cremation process. That’s not for everyone, but our goal is complete transparency with all of the families we serve.
So, if you’re considering cremation for yourself or your loved one, know not all cremation providers are created equal. But if you choose Krause, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one will be well cared for and that the cremated remains you receive are, in fact, those of your loved one.
