Mark Krause and the staff of Krause Funeral Homes and Cremation Service are nationally recognized for service excellence and innovation. A family business, Krause Funeral Homes has served the metro Milwaukee area since 1933. Krause has been on the forefront of the funeral profession with creative and contemporary approaches to the art of crafting funeral and memorial events with distinction. Traditional funerals, exceptional life celebrations, receptions and banquets are special moments that need care and expertise. COVID-19 has temporarily changed how we do funerals, but not why. Funerals are family events, and the Krause expert staff is trained in sensitivity, ethics and ways to create meaningful, customized and personal services to meet every family’s needs. The knowledgeable funeral preplanning team helps explain the benefits, options and funding vehicles available for preplanning funerals. Krause Funeral Homes are also experts with cremation services and operate their own facilities to ensure confidence and professional care. The Krause family currently operates four funeral locations.
