Death at home in the Brussels region

Death at home in the Brussels region: In the event of a death at home, the first thing to do is to notify the family doctor so that he or she can draft the attestation of death and fill out the certificate required in order to declare the death to the municipal administration (form III C).

Next, call your funeral director (02.648.40.68). You can come to our premises on avenue Jean Paquot 66, 1050 Ixelles, with or without an appointment. For your convenience, don’t hesitate to contact us by telephone so that we can arrange an appointment at your home, at the deceased’s home or at our premises, naturally at a time that suits you. If you wish, we can transport the deceased to the funeral parlour. We will then take care of all the administrative procedures for the funeral.

A detailed order form with the costs incurred will be given to you so that you can sign for agreement.

Information: You will need the deceased’s marriage certificate or family record book (if applicable) as well as his/her identity card or passport and residence permit.
