Many Milwaukeeans don’t thinking about selecting a funeral home . . . until they need their services. All too often, in a fog of shock and grief, they make a hasty decision feeling pressed for time. Here at Krause Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, we want to remind our friends and neighbors just how important it is to choose the right funeral home.
As funeral professionals, we are aware of the countless decisions that need to be made after death. There’s paperwork to compile and fill out, matters of when and where to hold the funeral, what elements to include at the service, whether to choose traditional burial or cremation, and so much more. Families like yours need to trust that funeral home staff will go the extra mile to make sure every detail is taken care of.
We also know what a difference it can make to hold an arrangement meeting, visitation, funeral service, and reception inside a beautiful facility. You want a funeral home that is easy to find, convenient for guests, and well cared for inside and out. And when you walk through the doors, you need a space that is welcoming, comfortable, and serene.
Our four locations were each carefully designed and decorated for superior comfort. We understand that families come to us under difficult circumstances and we make every effort to help them feel at home.
