When a person dies, the church office must be notified within two work days of the death. In many cases, the doctor issuing the death certificate will do this.

Requests for a funeral and cremation can be made by an undertaker/funeral director ("bedemand"), or you can do so yourself.

Please bring the following:


- Death certificate


- Baptism, birth or name certificate


- If the deceased was married, his or her marriage certificate

The funeral is arranged with the pastor in question. The church's pastors are available for talks and counselling in connection with the death.
