Registering a death in the Netherlands

Would you like to report the death of a loved one or someone else? Usually the funeral director will declare the death, but you can also do this yourself. This should be done at the municipality where your loved one died.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Delft.
