Our Facility

We recognize that families and friends gather most often at weddings, graduations, and funerals.  We've created a warm, home-like environment for fellowship and greeting so you can focus on your family and friends.

Our modern and spacious chapel, family room, and foyer comfortably accomodate 200 people.

Welcome to Dokken-Nelson

Located at 113 South Willson Avenue in Bozeman, Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service & Crematory is a full-service funeral home that has been serving the Gallatin Valley for more than 100 years.  This facility was opened in the fall of 1937 as a funeral home, and has remained as such since that time.

The Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service building was added to the Montana National Register of Historic Places on December 21, 1987.

Family Feedback

"Thank you seems too inadequate to express the true feelings in my heart for the way you handled the military service.  I know he would have approved of your efficient and caring manner and so do I.  Thanks again, too, for your kindness.  I shall always recommend your services to all I come in contact with."
