Why Should I Choose Krause?


One of our favorite parts of living in a bustling city like Milwaukee is that we have many options to choose from when it comes to things like where to shop, what to do for fun on the weekends, and where to go for frozen custard (our Krause staff has strong opinions on this one). Of course, the options extend beyond those listed to more significant choices like which funeral home to select when the need arises.

If you were to ask us why you should choose Krause Funeral Homes, we would tell you that our eight decades of experience as a family-owned funeral home puts us in a unique position to serve you as no one else can. When you come to us in Milwaukee, Brookfield, or New Berlin, you can have confidence that we know exactly how to help you.

We would also say that our long-standing reputation in the Milwaukee area is that of integrity and trustworthiness. We believe in open, compassionate communication and absolute price transparency. We’re also the only cremation provider in our area to offer the exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee, a trademarked, 10-step process that ensures your loved one is always treated with dignity and care.

Our professional team is another reason families have been coming to us for generations. Our staff is both highly experienced and compassionate and committed to providing the highest level of care. And since we all live and work among you, we know what’s important to you, and we know how to serve those from a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds and faith traditions.

People who come to Krause often tell us walking through our doors gives them a sense of peace. Our four facilities offer the home-like atmosphere families need during difficult times, with their warm lighting, comfortable furnishings, and cutting-edge A/V equipment.

Maybe most of all, people choose us because we offer more options than almost any other firm in the area. From celebrants to our signature services to personalization options – we offer the choices you need to create the most meaningful remembrance for your loved one. We’re  also the only funeral home in Wisconsin to offer a motorcycle hearse drawn by a V-twin-powered 3-wheel Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and we were the first funeral home in Wisconsin to obtain a state license to offer in-house catering facilities for receptions, including beer and wine. It’s details like these that are remembered and that make a celebration of life truly unique.

But you don’t have to take our word for it . . .  Here’s what some of your neighbors had to say about their experience with Krause Funeral Homes:

  • Your staff was so kind to our family when we were going through really difficult circumstances. They handled every detail of the funeral, so we didn’t have to worry about a thing.”
  • “Krause’s employees were so friendly, caring, and accommodating. We knew we could trust you to help us.”
  • “Everyone we met at Krause treated us with love, and the facility is beautiful. The funeral exceeded our expectations.”

We like to say that we’ve thought of everything, so you don’t have to. No matter your preferences, whether you’d like a traditional funeral service with a viewing and graveside burial followed by a sit-down meal, or a non-religious memorial, we cater everything around your individual needs and wishes. To learn more, we invite you to connect with us any time.
