Death certificates

The registry office in whose district the person died is always responsible for notifying a death (only current deaths!).
The death notification for death certification at the registry office is usually carried out by the undertaker.

If a private person reports a death directly, the following documents are required: The reporter must identify himself (ID card or passport with the last registration certificate).

The deceased requires: ID card or passport with the last registration certificate, medical certificate of death (death certificate) and proof of marital status, e.g. marriage certificate, divorce decree, etc. (if available).


In the case of death certification, only the required certificate for the funeral is issued. Death certificates are issued separately for a fee - see link.
