Registering a death

Step by step

  1. Did the person die in Eindhoven? Make an appointment.
  2. Come to Residents' Plaza (Inwonersplein) at the appointed time on the day agreed, and bring the necessary items.
  3. You will receive written permission for burial or cremation.
  4. We will inform a number of organisations of the death.

If the person who died was someone close to you, it can be overwhelming. A funeral parlour or undertaker knows about all the things that have to be taken care of and will help you organise the funeral. He or she will often register the death for you, but you might choose to do this yourself. First make an appointment.
