What to do when death occurs
When death occurs at home you should notify your General Practitioner or the doctor on duty who will perform the examination and take arrangements concerning the transportation of the deceased. It is advisable to ask the future funeral service provider’s help with the transportation of the deceased. The doctor should be informed about this fact and the selected method of burial (cremation, burial).The General Practitioner issues the death examination certificate. If there is cremation without an autopsy, the permit of the ÁNTSZ (National Public Health and Medical Officer Service) Chief Medical Officer is also necessary before the death certificate can be issued by the Registrar.
