  2. If possible, the family register or marriage certificate or – if the deceased was unmarried – the birth certificate, and a certificate if widowed or divorced (possibly the family register), and if these are not available, then at lest the identity card/passport of the deceased.
  3. The person reporting the death to the register office must present their identity card or passport.

The following documents must be submitted if the death occurred in a hospital or old people's home:

  3. If possible, the family register or marriage certificate or – if the deceased was unmarried – the birth certificate, and a certificate if widowed or divorced (possibly the family register), and if these are not available, then at lest the identity card/passport of the deceased.
