Funeraria Lorenzo, Inc.
Funeraria Lorenzo, Inc. (FLI) is a family-owned and operated funeral home located in Tondo, Manila. We have served families in and around Tondo for over 40 years. It is our goal to provide quality products and professional services at reasonable prices. It has been the legacy of the Lorenzo Family to offer the Filipino family the warm and caring environment during the loss of a loved one.
FLI was established in 1967 and started as Funeraria Lorenzo (FL) by Gregorio and Pelagia Lorenzo who are fondly called by many as "Mang Goying" and "Aling Pilang". The couples' main concern is to give decent funeral service even to the poorest of the poor. Unknown to many, Mang Goying and Aling Pilang gave free burial to indigent members of the community. Over the years, FL has earned the trust of the community in meeting families' needs during times of grief. Their legacy of helping others has been handed down to their children: Wilfredo, Rebecca, Aurora, Leonora, Flora and Helen.
With charity, integrity, compassion and good service as the core values, the business grew.
In 1972, the company opened its 3-storey chapel with morgue and showroom at Nicolas Zamora in Tondo. In that same year, Funeraria Lorenzo became the first mortuary in Tondo to have a Cadillac hearse.
Gregorio Lorenzo passed away in 1983. His mission was continued by his wife Pelagia and their children.
Funeraria Lorenzo acquired Jose Corazon de Jesus Elementary School in the mid-80s and converted the property into a garage for the company's fleet of hearses in the 90s.
Before the death of Pelagia Lorenzo in 1995, Funeraria Lorenzo was incorporated in 1992 and was re-established as Funeraria Lorenzo, Inc. (FLI). She was the first president. After her death, the eldest son Wilfredo succeeded and became company president.
Wilfredo was succeeded by Rebecca in 2005 after the latter passed away.
