Sunset Hills Cemetery Mountain View

Cadavers can be used for 1 to 5 years depending on the program they are used in. After studies are finished, the Montana Body Donation Program will arrange for final disposition of the body, either by cremation or by burial, according to the wishes outlined     by the donor and the family at the time the Declaration of Consent was signed. The MBDP will, in every case, confirm the final disposition wishes with the next of kin before final disposition.

Donors and families have 3 choices for final disposition of the donor after the anatomical studies are complete:        

  1. Remains will be cremated and then returned to the family, at no expense to the donor's estate or next of kin.
  2. The remains will be cremated and then buried in a shared plot and coffin, without a named stone, in the Bozeman City Cemetery, at no expense to the donor's estate or next of kin.
  3. The remains will be buried in a shared plot and coffin, without a named stone, in the Bozeman City Cemetery, at no expense to the donor's estate or next of kin. 

MBDP Gravestone     If cremation is chosen by the donor the MBDP will arrange for the cremation at the time   of final disposition. The remains may be sent to a designated family member or buried in   Sunset Hills Cemetery. This is at no expense to the donor's estate or next of kin.

If standard burial is chosen by the donor then the burial is performed in Sunset Hills Cemetery in Bozeman. This is a common plot without names on the gravestone to protect privacy of donors. A gravestone with the phrase "Dedicated to the Advancement of Medical Education" is placed on the gravesite. This is paid for by the MBDP.
