It's The Law | Cress Funeral & Cremation Service

It's the Law


It’s important to understand that Wisconsin is a very consumer protected state. And the state keeps close watch over the funeral industry to ensure that its citizens are treated fairly.

Because of this dedication and due-diligence –

It is illegal to pre-pay a funeral home directly for services not yet rendered.

Now, believe it or not this is actually a good thing. The state says that anyone wishing to pre-pay funeral needs – must do so through a Third-Party and not the funeral home itself.

How Cress follows the law….
