Grave Opening and Stacked Burial Permit
For traditional stacked burials in double-depth graves or casket/coffin burial in sepulchral vaults, our Company obtains a grave opening and stacked burial permit from the competent office of the National Public Health and Medical Officer Service (ÁNTSZ).
In case of death at HOME, the cremation permit is issued by the competent office of the National Public Health and Medical Officer Service based on the place of residence of the deceased, or by the hospital, if the autopsy is carried out in a hospital (Section 22 of the Post-mortem Examination Certificate).
