About Us

Welcome to our website. We're glad you are here and we hope to provide valuable information for you regarding burial, cremation, funerals, and memorial services. Please feel free to look around, meet the people who may help you, and see the facilities.


Caldwell Raddatz Funeral Home & Crematory is a locally and family-owned business, located in Urbandale.  James D. Raddatz and his wife, Karolyn, have owned the Caldwell Raddatz Funeral Home and Crematory since 1987. Our building on Hickman Road in Urbandale was built in 1995 with a forward vision to the western movement of the Des Moines metro population and increased demand for cremation services.


Esther and Roy Caldwell started the tradition in 1920 of serving families with personal concern and attention to all details through the planning process. We carry it forward into the 21st century by providing meaningful ceremonies, affordable pricing, and honoring family traditions and requests.
