It may not be the most original thought—treating you with the same care and respect we’d treat our own families—however it is the most genuine and sincere sentiment we hold. Understand we are not like conventional businesses because the work we do is personal. We are not driven by individual accomplishments and accolades, but the need to serve you and your family when death occurs and help you through the difficult days that follow. Your personal comfort and wellbeing is our first priority. We are funeral directors but we could just as easily be called family directors. This is personal. We understand what it is like to lose a loved one. Which is why we will always be a funeral home—not some local funeral business.

Like most families, Schmidt & Bartelt Funeral and Cremation Services has grown over the years and has roots in numerous communities throughout southeastern Wisconsin, from Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties to Walworth, Washington and Waukesha as well.

We invite you to stop in and introduce yourself anytime. You’ll find our staff and funeral directors as warm and engaging as any good friend or neighbor. You may even discover we share many of the same friends, acquaintances and interests. A great way to get started is by visiting our funeral directors page where you can read their individual bios and familiarize yourself with each of them.

“Since 1887, we have served families throughout the greater Milwaukee area as if you were a member of our own.”
