Cress Funeral & Cremation

Humbly, we believe Cress has a unique responsibility to honor the dignity of the deceased, to aid and counsel the family in time of grief, to encourage remembrance with each family within its own traditions, culture and financial means.

As a family owned company with a long legacy of helping Madison, Wisconsin family and friends experiencing bereavement, we understand that a family needs someone to turn to in a moment’s notice. Someone who truly cares and has the ability and resources to offer exemplary services. Many things have changed since our beginning in 1869, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to being here every step of the way for the bereaved in our communities when they need us most.

Do You Know A Child Who’s Grieving?

April 27, 2017

Agrace offering free grief support groups for children 5 to 18. 

Kids Grief Support Group is a five-week support group series for children 5 through 18 who are grieving a death.

Children are resilient, but they need opportunities to discuss their feelings and talk about the person who died. This group gives them the chance to find comfort through meeting other kids who have been through a similar loss. They also participate in activities and projects that encourage self-expression.

All are welcome:  Children are welcome to join this free grief support group even if the person who died was not an Agrace patient.

MADISON Campus:  Agrace HospiceCare, 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Fitchburg

Thursdays, May 25 – June 22, 2017; 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

If you are interested in registering, call Madison – Jessie (608) 327-7135  or visit their website, agrace.org/grief-support/griefgroups/grief-support-inquiry/

From the moment you extended your hand and lovely smile to our grieving mom and sister until the final hug after Jeff’s funeral we knew you were special.

Thank you so much for the excellent care you took in handling the funeral arrangements for Earl. Your attention to every detail was so personal to us.
