A standard of excellence in funeral service
With decades of history and tradition, Striffler-Hamby Mortuary - Columbus sets the standard for funerals in Columbus and guarantees your total satisfaction. In addition to the finest funeral home facilities, we have a detail-oriented, compassionate staff with many years of combined experience. They can assist you in the arrangement of funerals, visitations, celebrations of life, memorial services and cremations.
A beautiful Columbus funeral home
Our elegantly furnished funeral home provides a sophisticated place for memorializing your loved one. The chapel has hardwood flooring, chandeliers, a baby grand piano and an updated sound system. Our audio-visual technology includes a drop-down screen for showing photographs or videos. For a very large funeral or memorial, we can broadcast onto screens in our staterooms, allowing us to accommodate up to 300 people for a service.
Celebration of life services
Special touches make a service personal and meaningful. The reading of a treasured verse or a color scheme can help make your or your loved one’s funeral a personal reflection. We can help you explore the possibilities for creating a truly personalized memorial. Or if your desire is to have a simple traditional service or laid-back gathering, we can help you arrange that too. Whether formal or casual, we want the funeral you plan to exceed your every expectation. We excel at managing even the smallest details so that your vision is thoughtfully and expertly brought into focus.
We take great care in designing creative tributes. Whether you are planning ahead for yourself or planning the services of a loved one, Striffler-Hamby can help you select music and mementos for a fitting celebration of life. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to telling a life story. In fact, the International Cemetery and Cremation Association honored us with the Keeping It Personal award in 2015.
Striffler-Hamby Mortuary - Columbus has multiple spaces for funeral services and receptions. The multifunctional Mill Room showcases the history of the city of Columbus. The chapel converts to an elegant space for an event. We can assist in creating a meaningful event for the life you are celebrating and encourage you to decorate in a special way with framed photographs or mementos.
We honor veterans
Striffler-Hamby Mortuary - Columbus understands the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level One Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we have a staff who is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one. Ask your Striffler-Hamby funeral director about the military funeral honors available to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines and National Guard.
We also maintain a close partnership with the National Infantry Museum, which works to honor the legacy of U.S. Army infantryman. Located in Columbus, the museum is home to the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall, a ¾-scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. For more than a decade the replica traveled to more than 200 cities across the country; it now has a permanent place at the museum.
Commitment to community

David Abraham Striffler began his career at the firm of C.L. Torbett Company in 1908 in Columbus. In 1913, he joined the firm Herring and Knight, which started as an undertaking business in 1886. In 1923, David opened his own business, D.A. Striffler Company, in downtown Columbus. In 1930, David moved into the 1st building used as a funeral home in Columbus and renamed the funeral home Striffler Mortuary.
Thelon A. Hamby Jr. began working for David while attending high school in 1932. Thelon continued working at the funeral home after graduation, and in 1954, he became a partner. The funeral home was renamed Striffler-Hamby Mortuary.
When David died in 1964, Thelon became president and added a 2nd location in east Columbus in 1972. In 1980, Thelon's son, Thelon A. Hamby III, joined the company. A year later, the company expanded once more when it purchased Buice Chapel in Phenix City, Alabama.
In 1995, the 3 Striffler-Hamby Mortuaries became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
