Our Facility

Ambruster Chapel - Clayton

Built in 1931, our Tudor style mortuary resembles a castle like feel. It is a distinctive building with "old world" charm designed to impress guest for visitations and services. It was constructed of stone walls and remains so today. The facility offers many amenities to the Clayton Community. A chapel or large visitation room was built to accommodate families of all sizes. This room is elegant and has been known as the "Great Hall" since the early 1930's. A pipe organ was installed to accommodate requests for services to be held at the funeral home in lieu of going to another location for services. This pipe organ is still in use today, situated in the loft above the "Great Hall". The facility was designed with several parlors available to meet the growing needs of the community. These rooms are available for visitations, gatherings, luncheons, or memorial services to meet any families needs.

We encourage family members to take advantage of our services for catering during their time with us. It is a convenient way to ensure your family and friends have nourishment during the visitation and services. We are able to use any of our rooms to accommodate any requests.

To keep up with the renovation of our facility we recently renovated the ladies restrooms on the main level and will be working in the near future on the men's restroom located in the "Men's Lounge" on the lower level of our building.

We are conveniently located in Clayton, Missouri on Clayton Road near Big Bend Boulevard, and just minutes away from Interstate 40 and the Skinker/McCausland exit.
