Our Cremation Process: Why It Matters


While it’s not right for everyone, all across the country, more people than ever are selecting cremation, with cremation rates expected to reach nearly 79% by 2035. Families in Milwaukee, Brookfield, and New Berlin are no exception, with many opting for cremation due to convenience, greater religious acceptance, matters of finance, and fewer adherences to family traditions. But it’s important to realize that not all cremation providers are trustworthy. One only needs to follow the news to learn about the devastating consequences a negligent cremation provider can inflict on a family.

When it comes to cremation, and the many other services we offer here at Krause Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, our primary goal is offering peace of mind to every family who walks through our doors. Our caring staff realizes there is an extra layer of trust needed when cremation is chosen instead of traditional burial.

When you entrust your loved one to a funeral home or other provider for cremation, you have to know the staff will treat your family member or friend with dignity and respect throughout the whole process. You also have to have the confidence that, at the end, the remains returned to you are truly those of your loved one.

That is why we are committed to doing everything possible to ensure your peace of mind.

  • We own and operate our own crematory. Many other cremation providers outsource cremation to third-party providers, but we observe the entire process from beginning to end. We 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 are the only funeral provider in Milwaukee County to offer a 10-step cremation process backed by the exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ guarantee. This trademarked process means your loved one never leaves our care from the moment they arrive at our funeral homes, through the process, to the return of their cremated remains to you. Because we own our own crematory, we can make sure the ten steps are followed to the letter.
  • To bring families added comfort, we have special viewing room right next to our crematory, so they can be present for the start of the cremation process. We’re the only funeral home in the Milwaukee area to offer this option. Not to mention the fact that loved ones are welcome to tour our facility and inspect the equipment at any time.

As a family-owned funeral home, family values are at the center of everything we do. It all comes down to trust, and it’s our hope that your family will reach out to us with your funeral and cremation needs when the time comes.
