Death and funeral issues

Local Registry Office (“Matrika”) registers all death that happen on the territory of Bratislava-Rača. It also issues death certificate (“Úmrtný list”). Important document is declaration of death (“List o prehliadke mŕtveho”) signed by coroner (physician), as well as identity card of dead person (or its passport). It must be submitted to Registry Office within three days declaration of death was issued. You can decide for civil, church or mixed funeral ceremony. Very helpful in all matters concerning death and funeral are all funeral services operating in Bratislava. They provide very complex service to surviving relatives (e.g. contacting all relevant administrative bodies, church etc.).
