When Mike Nathe opened Bismarck Funeral Home and Crematory in March of 1996, it was in direct response to the glut of corporate-owned funeral homes in Bismarck. Since that time, Bismarck Funeral Home and Crematory has never been bought or sold to anyone. Bismarck Funeral Home and Crematory has the distinction of being the longest continuously locally-owned funeral home in Bismarck today.


Bismarck Funeral Home and Crematory is a full-service funeral home. We not only offer and conduct full traditional casket services, but we also offer cremation services. We have our own crematory right in our building to ensure the accuracy and quality of the cremation services we provide.


Families often mark relevant changes in their lives with elaborate ceremonies, such as graduation, weddings, baptisms, etc. A funeral service is a time to reflect on the past while looking towards the future, and to celebrate our loved one’s lives and reflect upon their accomplishments.


Because we are a locally-owned funeral home and because we are a part of the community, we understand that quality of service and costs are very important. That’s why we will provide you with any information and price lists that you request. This is the straightforward and honest approach that has always been our hallmark.
