Why Preplan

In this day and time, we are constantly reminded to make plans that assure the well-being of our families if something should happen to us. Chances are you have already created your will, taken out life insurance, and prepared many other things to ensure your property and financial estate are preserved for those you love.

But what about the emotional estate you leave to them? Planning your funeral in advance not only gives you control of how you are remembered, it also allows you to consider the feelings and expectations of your family. The more you plan ahead for this inevitable need, the greater sense of peace you and your family will experience.

This is why we urge you to consider advance planning. At Porter Loring, it costs nothing for you to look more into this option. You are never under any pressure or obligation, and we will be happy to help you start the process at any time you’re ready.



It's Simple

It’s as simple as completing a form or meeting with one of our staff members to put your plan in place. No matter your age, anyone can preplan, and you can make changes whenever you wish.

You Relieve the Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden, so they can focus on grief and remembrance.

You’re in Control

When you preplan, you’re in control of creating a unique celebration of life. You also can include your family members in the planning, so the service reflects their wishes and needs as well.

There are Prepay Options

We deposit your prepayments into a trust fund or funeral insurance policy where it stays until needed. Prepaying generally means you save money since you’re protected from inflation and price changes, and it also gives your family members peace of mind knowing that the funeral expenses are taken care of.

How to Begin

Check out our planning checklist to see all your options. Then, you can plan online using our form or you can schedule a meeting with our staff to plan your personalized service details.

Additionally, we keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and prepayments, and most funeral insurance policies are easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States if you were to move.



Please take a few minutes to fill out our online preplanning form. Once your information is submitted, one of our representatives will review and contact you shortly to discuss the details of your arrangements.

Note: We do not release any information to outside parties under any circumstances.
