Different Types of Funeral Services


At Krause Funeral Home, we believe everyone has a special story to tell and are proud to offer families in Brookfield, Milwaukee, and New Berlin a variety of options when it comes to honoring their loved one. We understand that every family is unique and has specific preferences regarding how they’d like their loved one’s service to be arranged. Our caring staff members bring over 850 years of combined funeral service experience to helping you and your family craft an unforgettable tribute to your loved one.


Here are just a few of the different types of funeral services we can arrange here at our

funeral home:



Whether you prefer a traditional in-ground burial or a green burial, our experienced team will help you understand your options. We’ll design a beautiful service that accommodates your family’s needs and budget along with your loved one’s spiritual preferences, if these apply. From a catered reception to an intimate visitation with close friends and family in attendance, we’ll help you select the service aspects that are important to you.



Many people believe that choosing cremation limits the available service options. At Krause, this is not the case: When you decide on cremation with us, there are a number of cremation packages from which to choose. For example, you can still hold a graveside service, a visitation, or a reception. With cremation you have more flexibility as to when you hold a memorial service for your loved one. There are also many memorial items for families who choose cremation. These include keepsake jewelry, decorative urns, and cremation boxes.


Personalizing Your Funeral Service

We encourage every family we serve to get as creative as they like when planning their loved one’s funeral service. We can help you personalize a loved one’s service for either burial or cremation. We have an inviting reception room at our funeral home that we can decorate with your loved one’s favorite sports team colors or your best-loved photos of them. No matter the specifics of your service, our professional event planners at Krause are ready to help you craft a memorable event that your family and friends will find inspiring and worthy of your loved one.
