Welcome.


Thompson Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Thompson Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.  

 And according to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.  

 At Thompson Funeral Home, we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials. 

 Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow. 

 A member of the South Carolina Funeral Directors Association (SCFDA), we regularly receive information via SCFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States.  

We pray that everyone comes together during this difficult time.  

 If  you have any questions, please contact us at (803)534-1241 or via email at hthompson24@sc.rr.com.
