Death certificate Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Death certificates are issued by the registry office.

The death of a person is entered in the death register of the registry office in whose jurisdiction he died ("notarized"). On the basis of this notarization, the registrar issues a death certificate on request. The application may be made orally, in writing or by fax; many registry offices have also placed an electronic form on their website with which documents can be ordered.

A death certificate shall include:

  • the first names and surnames of the deceased,
  • place and day of his birth,
  • his religious affiliation,
  • his last place of residence,
  • his marital status, and
  • Place and time of death.

In addition, a certified printout from the death register can also be issued.
