We serve all religions and have full-time staff available 24 hours-a-day, every day of the year. We are located in Kissimmee, FL. The following are just a few of the ways we are unique.
Family owned and operated
Many death care businesses in Central Florida are owned by huge chains and multi-national conglomerates. We, however, proudly remain independently owned and operated. Porta Coeli Funeral Home & Crematory and our staff believe that we are accountable to you, not far-away stockholders. We believe that the most valuable thing we own is our reputation. We are kind, gentle, and knowledgeable men and women who respect your right to choose without pressure or undue influence. Every staff associate is expected and empowered to do anything it takes to serve your family well. The owners and staff of Porta Coeli are your neighbors, and we are the ones who live and are active in your community.
Our staff is specially selected and trained to facilitate services that reflect your needs and cultural traditions. Our goal is to listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that will be comforting and full of meaning.
Price and value
We understand that we have only one opportunity to serve you and your family sensitively and correctly, and we have always voluntarily adhered to high standards. We attract and retain the best professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable staff possible. Our people provide consistently outstanding care to those we serve.

It's important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.
It's often seen as easier not to have a memorial service or funeral, and it's certainly seen as a less expensive alternative. But we're here to say this: an easy, cheaper path is not always better one. Grief experts all agree: a ceremony is an important part of the healing process.
The importance of being affiliated with a Crematory can’t be overstated. It means our families who choose cremation can expect thorough privacy, convenience and respect since we have complete control in the handling of the entire cremation process.
Without a doubt, this is one of the most important tools available to you for understanding and controlling funeral costs. Review our General Price List with the members of your family involved in making funeral arrangements. Please call us with any questions.
