About Mid-Wisconsin Cremation Society
We offer a complete cremation package. This includes from the time of initial contact to the return of your loved ones cremated remain. We are an on site owned and opporated facility.
We do offer Cremation Tribute Packs for families who wish to have a memorial service either before or after the cremation has taken place. This includes custom memorial folders, a register book, and service either here at the funeral home or at a church of choice. It also includes for us to assist the families with burial after cremation if the family chooses.
We offer private family viewing prior to cremation along with self directed celebration of life services.
Mid-Wisconsin Cremation Society is an al a carte program for families wanting to pick and choose their serivces. You will not be forced to purchase anything you don't need or want. Also do not let other funeral homes tell you you are required to have your love one embalmed if you you are cremating this is not true but its a service you will be charged for. Special preparation of the body is often another service other funeal homes will charge you which is not needed. If you choose to be cremated there are only 3 things needed, our direct cremation charge $980.00, a county medical examiner permit which allows a funeral home to cremate (this fee is based on the county of death which ranges from $75 to $300) and death certificates which is another county fee (ex: 6 Certified Death Certificates is $35.00) Those three items are it and don't be convinced you need to purchase anything else.
Mid-Wisconsin Cremation Society was started in 2009 by John J. Buettgen. The crematory is locally owned and operated and serves only families of our facility.
