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 Krimpenerwaard.

Death, declaration

When someone has died, the funeral director usually informs the municipality that this person has died. As a surviving dependant, you can also register the death yourself. This must be done in the municipality where the person died. We process the death in the Personal Records Database (BRP). This way government organizations are automatically informed.
