Brainerd's first undertaking firm was that of Mr. Albert E. Losey. He came to Brainerd in 1882. Isaac T. Dean joined him in 1884. Mr. Losey continued in this business until his death in 1910. Daniel E. Whitney of Sauk Center, an employee of Losey and Dean, took over the operation of the firm after the death of Mr. Dean in 1914. , John Nelson purchased the Whitney Funeral Home at 720 Front Street and in 1956, Thomas Doran purchased the Hoenig Funeral Home at 502 Front Street.

In 1960, the Nelson Funeral Chapel and the Doran Funeral Chapel merged to create the Nelson-Doran Funeral Home. At that time they built the new facility at it's current location, on the east side of Brainerd. In 1987 John Nelson retired and Thomas Doran continues with his son Michael Doran, who joined the firm in 1987. Erik Christensen joined the firm in 1988.

During the winter of 1996, a cremation facility was added to the Brainerd Chapel. John Nelson died on January 9, 2003.
