Columbia Cremation, Cemetery & Funeral Home

Our Columbia Funeral Home

At Thompson Funeral Home, we have proudly served the Lexington, West Columbia and Columbia communities since 1928, when our founder J.R. “Buddy” Thompson first opened our doors. In 2013, Thompson Funeral Homes merged with Greenlawn Memorial Park to form Thompson Funeral Home at Greenlawn Memorial Park. This space offers  families in the Richland County and downtown Columbia area the benefit of planning services alongside our beautiful memorial park. Our grounds celebrate the natural beauty of Columbia, with perfectly maintained dogwoods, crepe myrtle and centuries old live oaks. Whether you are interested in burial or cremation services, we have an option for every family. We offer in-ground interment options and above-ground entombment in our Mausoleum, which is widely celebrated for it’s beautiful marble face. We host services at our beautiful Mausoleum Chapel. We also offer niches for cremation urns, a permanent memorialization option for families who choose cremation services in Columbia. 

When you are ready to make arrangements, we are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (803) 563-7628.
