Fifty years ago, only a tiny fraction of Americans – 3.6% – chose cremation. Now, that number hovers right around 50% and is increasing rapidly every year. Krause Funeral Homes & Cremation Service has been serving Milwaukee-area families for more than 80 years, and our staff has certainly noticed more families choosing cremation over that time.
We’ve also noticed that even though cremation is more popular than ever, it’s common for people to still have questions about it. Whether your family is in Brookfield, New Berlin, or in Milwaukee near Brown Deer Road or Capitol Drive, we have experienced teams who are ready to inform you about your many cremation memorialization options with Krause Funeral Homes.
One of the main concerns we hear – and really a major misconception – is that when you choose cremation, you can’t have a service. Families want to tell the story of their loved one’s life, and pay tribute in a meaningful way. The good news is that the Krause Funeral Homes team provides many avenues to do so!
As with traditional burials, we offer a family choosing cremation a variety of choices to celebrate their loved one. We’re here to help you create any or all of the following:
- A visitation, reception, service, catered gathering, or graveside burial.
- Vaults, caskets, and urns that bear emblems and engravings reflecting religious affiliation, special interests, and/or military or civic service.
- Personalized memorials that highlight your loved one’s interests, hobbies, accomplishments, personality, as well as faith and cultural traditions.
- Elements such as flowers, music, readings, and even a viewing.
We also offer unique Signature Services at no additional cost to make your service special, including a traditional or motorcycle hearse and the service of our grief therapy dog, Bennie.
Krause Funeral Homes gives added peace of mind to those choosing cremation, as we own and operate our own crematory, and we are the only cremation provider in Milwaukee County who can offer the Cremation with Confidence™ guarantee. Unlike other funeral homes and cremation societies who outsource cremation to third-party providers, your loved one remains in our diligent and professional care. Our ten-step process ensure your loved one is treated with dignity and respect.
Whether you choose traditional burial or cremation, our professional team is here to explain every detail and describe how a final farewell can be personalized to fit your needs. Simple details and personal touches make for a deeply meaningful memorial service families will never forget. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us today to learn more.
