Ambruster Chapel Customer


Thank you for your services yesterday for my mothers funeral. You did an amazing job and made it very peaceful and comforting. Robert and his team are just awesome with their services.
I was very impressed with how the staff made me feel comfortable when my husband passed away. They were helpful, attentive, consoling and respectful. I am glad to have the opportunity to express my appreciation.
My grandmother passed away unexpectantly and we had to make last minute funeral arrangements on her behalf. We contacted Ambruster and they were very consoling and helped us arrange the funeral quickly. Her funeral service was beautiful and we were very pleased. I would highly recommend Ambruster to anyone needing funeral services in the St. Louis area.

A Distinguished History

About Us

Robert J. Ambruster founded Ambruster more than 100 years ago in the City of St. Louis. They provided the citizens of St. Louis excellence in service for more than 25 years.

In the late 1920's, the Ambruster Family hired the St. Louis architectural firm of Maritz, Young, and Dusard to design a larger facility to meet the growing needs of St. Louis County.  In 1931, Ambruster relocated to its current facility located in Clayton, Missouri.

In 1980, the Ambruster Family purchased Donnelly Funeral Home. The Ambruster Family cherished the relationship with the Donnelly Family and merged the names to create Ambruster Donnelly. After some changes, the name is now Ambruster Chapel.
