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.
